Homemade Soft Pretzels Recipe
INGREDIENTS: (Yield 8 pretzels)
1 1/2 cup Warm Water
1 tbsp Sugar
2 tsp Salt
2 1/2 tsp or (1 pkg) Yeast
4 cup Flour
2 oz melted Butter
10 cups water
2/3 cup baking soda
1 large egg yolk beaten with 1 tablespoon water
Pretzel salt (can substitute Kosher or Sea Salt)
Combine water, sugar and salt and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer.
Wait 5 minutes or until it starts to foam.
Use dough hook attachment.
Add the flour and butter and mix on low speed until combined.
Change to medium speed and knead until the dough is smooth and pulls away from the side of the bowl(about 5 minutes).
Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with towel and sit in a warm place for about an hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
Preheat the oven to 450.
Line 2 baking sheets pans with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray or brush with vegetable oil.
Bring the 10 cups of water and the baking soda to a boil in an large pan.
Lightly oil your work surface and turn out the dough and divide into 8 pieces.
Roll out each piece of dough into a 2 foot rope. Flip ends of the rope across each other and press onto the bottom of the U in order to form the shape of a pretzel. Place onto the baking sheets.
Place the pretzels into the boiling water, 1 by 1, for 30 seconds.
Place back on the baking sheet, brush the top of each pretzel with the egg wash and sprinkle with the pretzel salt.
Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
Transfer to a cooling rack.
