Buttery Soft Pretzels

Made  times

"After spending so much money on those Mall bought pretzels, I thought I'd try making some myself. So here's a recipe that has worked for me. These pretzels are a bit sweeter than other types and are buttery. These are great plain with a bit of pretzel salt or coated with cinnamon and sugar. Enjoy!"

  1. Disolve the yeast in the warm water. Sprinkle the 1tsp. of sugar over it and let set 5 min.
  2. While the yeast is "proofing", mix flour, sugar, and salt together in another bowl. Make a well in the center and add the oil and the proofed yeast mixture. Mix and form into a dough. (If the mixture is dry, add one or two tablespoons of water) Knead the dough until smooth. (It may take 7 or 8 minutes)Place dough back into the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm place. Let rise until double in size.
  3. While dough is rising, mix the baking soda and warm water until dissolved.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  5. When risen, divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 2 1/2ft rope. Shape into a pretzel. Once dough is all shaped dip each pretzel into the baking soda solution and place on a greased baking sheet. If you're using pretzel salt, sprinkle it on before baking. Bake immediately for 8 mins, or until brown. Once finished, dip the hot pretzel in melted butter and coat with your favorite flavors. They are best while still hot.
