Step into the world of artisan baking with Pretzels, a beloved snack that boasts a delightful combination of chewy texture and savory flavor. Whether enjoyed on their own or paired with your favorite dips, Pretzels are sure to satisfy your cravings and impress your guests.


1 lb (0.45 kg) all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 packet (2 ¼ teaspoons) active dry yeast

1 cup warm water

2 tablespoons baking soda

Coarse salt for sprinkling

Optional: melted butter for brushing


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. Gradually add the warm water to the dry ingredients, stirring until a dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, or until it becomes smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size. Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Punch down the risen dough and divide it into equal-sized pieces. Roll each piece into a long rope, about 18 inches (45 cm) long, and shape it into a pretzel. In a shallow dish, dissolve the baking soda in 3 cups of hot water. Dip each pretzel into the baking soda solution, then place it onto the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the pretzels with coarse salt. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Optional: Brush the baked pretzels with melted butter for added flavor.


Serve the freshly baked Pretzels warm with your favorite mustard, cheese sauce, or dip. They're perfect for snacking on game days, movie nights, or any time you're craving a savory treat.
