  • Makes
    6 pretzels

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Coarse salt

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar and salt. Stir in flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes (dough will be sticky). Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down and divide into six portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 14-in. rope; twist in a pretzel shape. Place on greased baking sheets. Brush with butter; sprinkle with coarse salt.
  • Bake at 425° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Serve warm.
