These are by far the best soft pretzels I've ever tasted. I make them often to serve as a snack or even as part of a meal. Chewy and golden brown, they're delicious! -Shannon Cooper, S. Gibson, Pennsylvania

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the butter, sugar, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  2. Punch dough down. Divide into 12 equal pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece into a 15-in. long strip; twist into a pretzel shape.
  3. In a large non-aluminum stockpot, bring water to a boil; add baking soda. Drop two pretzels into water; boil for 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain. Place on a greased baking sheet; sprinkle with coarse salt. Repeat for each pretzel.
  4. Bake at 475° for 10-12 minutes. Remove from pan to wire racks to cool.
  5. For dip, combine cheeses in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until melted, stirring occasionally. Stir in milk. Serve pretzels with cheese dip and mustard. Yield: 1 dozen.

These were delicious, they taste better than the kind you buy at the mall. Very easy to make.

Update - I separated the dough into 8 pieces, patted into flattened balls and made pretzel rolls. I boiled in the baking soda water for 1 minute and baked until golden, about 13-15 minutes. They are a nice change from regular rolls

I don't care for the soda flavor that remains on the pretzels so I boiled these in plain water and got a great result.
