Easy Soft Pretzels

Homemade Soft Pretzels with SaltI wanted to post the soft pretzel recipe that I got from my Home Ec teacher in 8th grade but I couldn’t find it. I did a google search, however, and found one that I think is pretty close on cbc.ca. I hope you love it as much as I have over the years. Don’t loose this one, it’s so easy and really good.

  • 1 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 2 3/4 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt, for pretzel dough
  • 1 egg + 1 tbsp water, for egg wash
  • Coarse salt, to taste, for finishing pretzels
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Combine warm water with yeast in a small bowl. Let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Combine 2 3/4 cups flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
  4. Add yeast mixture to flour mixture. Stirring or mixing with your hands to bring dough together, adding 1/4 cup more flour, as needed.
  5. Sprinkle work surface with flour and knead dough until smooth and elastic.
  6. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll into 15-inch long ropes. Shape into a pretzel knot. (You could also just make pretzel sticks, if you like.)

  8. Bake until golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve with mustard, cheese dip or if desired.
