Perfect And Easy Soft Pretzels

Perfect And Easy Soft Pretzels

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 oz) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (around 110°-115°F)
  • 2 Tablespoons softened butter
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 & ¾ cups all-purpose flour (may not need all of it)
  • 4 cups water
  • ¼ cup baking soda
  • Coarse sea salt for sprinkling
  • ¼ cup melted butter

Instructions

  1. Place the warm water in the bowl of your stand mixer. Sprinkle the top of the water with the yeast packet. Let it dissolve for about 2 minutes. Once dissolved add in the softened butter brown sugar salt and 2 cups of the flour. Using a dough hook attachment mix on medium-low speed until a sticky dough comes together and dough is smooth. Stir in any remaining flour ¼ cup at a time until dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl and when touched with a finger does not stick and springs back lightly when touched. Place in a lightly greased bowl and cover with a tea towel. Let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line 2 baking sheets with silicone liners or parchment paper. GREASE whatever liner you use – trust me on this! I just spread a stick of butter around the parchment paper to make sure it is greased well.
  3. Punch the dough down a couple times to break up any air pockets. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. The best way to do this is to cut in half with a pizza cutter then cut each half into fourths. Using your palms and the heels of your hands roll each piece into a 12-15 long rope on a clean work surface – do NOT flour your work surface as this will prevent the stretch of your dough. Shape the rope into a circle with about 2-3 inch of each end overlapping (think the shape of a breast cancer awareness ribbon). Twist the ends where they overlap then flip the twisted ends over the circle pinching the ends into the circle to form a pretzel shape.
  4. In a large saucepan bring the water to a boil over medium heat. Add in the baking soda; mixture will bubble violently for a minute. Drop a pretzel into the boiling water using a slotted spatula. Let boil for about 30 seconds then gently remove with the spatula allowing excess water to drip off. Place on the greased baking sheets and shape back to pretzel shape if needed. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt if using. Repeat with remaining pretzels.
  5. Bake the pretzels for 10-12 minutes rotating pans halfway through baking time to ensure even baking or until golden brown on top. Brush with melted butter while still hot. Serve warm or room temperature!
