Homemade Soft Pretzels (Quick Recipe)

Delicious soft pretzels in about 20 minutes. Homemade pretzels are best.

– 1 1/2 cups warm water

– 1 tablespoon white sugar

– 5 teaspoons active dry yeast

– 4 cups all-purpose flour

– 1/4 cup melted butter

– 1 teaspoon coarse salt

– 1 egg, beaten

– coarse salt to taste
Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Step 2: Mix water and sugar together in a bowl until sugar is dissolved; add yeast. Let mixture stand until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.

Step 3: Whisk flour, butter, and salt together in a bowl until well mixed; add yeast mixture and stir with a fork until dough starts to cling. Turn dough onto a floured work surface and knead until smooth.

Step 4: Cut dough into 15 equal pieces and roll each piece between your hands into rope shapes at least the thickness of a pencil. Twist dough into desired shapes and arrange on a baking sheet; brush with egg and sprinkle coarse salt over each.

Step 5: Bake in the preheated oven until pretzels are browned and cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes.
