INGREDIENTS

PREPARE THE DOUGH AS LISTED ON THE BACK OF OUR SWEET DOUGH MIX.

                 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED FOR THE DOUGH: 

1 1/4 cups warm whole milk (temperature between 105º - 110ºF)

3/4 cups butter (1 1/2 sticks or 169 g), melted

2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten

 

WATER MIXTURE

8 cup water

1/4 cup baking soda, baked (instructions below)

 

EGG WASH

1 egg yolk

1 tbs water

 

TOPPING

Pretzel salt

Oven Temperature:

Preheat oven to 350ºF

Bake Time:

15 – 18 minutes until golden brown

MAKING THE DOUGH

  1. Prepare the dough as listed on the packet.
  2. Store in refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight for easy handling.

 

PREPARE BAKING SODA

  1. Baking the baking soda will increase the ph of the water bath which will result in better tasting and darker looking pretzels. You can omit this step if desired.
  2. Bake the baking soda in an aluminum lined baking pan at 250ºF oven for 1 hour. Let cool and set aside. You can bake a batch of baking soda and store in an airtight container so you always have it on hand.

 

FORMING PRETZELS

  1. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and remove desired amount of dough.
  2. Using half of the prepared dough, cut the dough into 8 pieces and roll them out into thin ropes about 14 inches, twist the two ends to form a pretzel shape.
  3. While the dough is rising, prepare the water bath. Using a large stainless steel pot, add 8 cups of water and 1/4 cup baked baking soda.  Stir with a rubber spatula until baking soda is dissolved.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a gentle simmer.  Boil each pretzel for 1 minute, flipping to the other side after 30 seconds.
  4. Transfer pretzels to a baking sheet, brush with egg wash, and sprinkle with pretzel salt. Bake until golden brown.
