How to Make Yummerliscious Soft Pretzels

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup of flour, yeast, sugar, 2 tablespoons of butter, and 1 1/3 cup water. Let this mixture stand until bubble begin to form, about 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in the salt and gradually stir in the remaining flour until dough can be picked up and kneaded on the counter. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes, adding more flour if needed.
  3. Divide the dough into 6 pieces and let them rest for a few minutes.
  4. Roll out one piece at a time into a rope about 15 inches long. Loop and twist into that cool pretzel shape. Set on a baking sheet while you roll out the remaining portions.
  5. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  6. Bring the remaining 3 cups of water to a boil (remove from heat)and add the baking soda. Dip pretzels into the water bath for about 45 seconds, flipping over about halfway through. Place the soaked pretzels on a greased baking sheet.
  7. Brush them with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse salt. OR!! you could add the garlic powder, or cinnamon/sugar to the butter and brush them with that...can you say YUM!?!
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
