Hot Buttered Pretzels

21 Feb

This recipe is courtesy of the wonderful Emily Woloszyn.  She posted this recipe on Facebook and I just *had* to try it out.  The recipe is very easy and virtually no fail.  You get these hard on the outside…soft on the inside…dripping with butter pretzels.  You will never buy bagged pretzels again.  Thank you Emily!


Hot Buttered Pretzels

  • 2.5 C All purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 1/4 (or I packet) Active dry yeast
  • 7-8 oz warm water (7 in the summer, 8 in the winter)


  • 1/2 C Warm water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Course, Kosher or Pretzel salt
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, metlted

Mix first 4 ingredients.   Add the water and mix until a nice dough ball forms (your goal here is a soft dough).

Dust the dough with flour and put in ziploc bag or covered in a bowl to rise for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees

Spray cookie sheets with veg oil or line w/parchment ( I cook mine on stones).

Transfer the dough to a lightly greased surface, I use olive oil rubbed onto the counter.

Divide into 8 equal pieces. let sit covered on the counter for 5 minutes. roll ea. pretzel to 28 inches or a bit longer and twist into the pretzel shape.

Dip in the warm water mixed with the sugar and place on baking sheet.

Sprinkle with salt bake 8 to 9 minutes or until golden

Brush the melted butter on them after they come out of the oven.
