Soft Beer Pretzels
Total TimePrep: 1 hour + rising Bake: 10 min.
I made these several years ago. I had made the traditional pretzel shape, which I thought was difficult and didn't come out as pretty. I am going to try again making the bites.
I made the bites. These look and taste great. But that step about drying them on paper towels??? Do this only if you want to thrown them in the trash. Hot wet dough is sticky and just becomes one with the paper towel. Yep, I know from experience.
I made a batch of these last night. I bake my own bread but this was only my second time baking a soft pretzel recipe. As far as flavor they are the best tasting soft pretzels I've had since I was in Germany in the '70s. My attempt came out more doughy than I would like but that was likely my fault. I followed the recipe to the letter. Perhaps I beat or kneaded a little too much. They came out looking just like the picture and tasted wonderful! I used a 6.7% alcohol content beer and active dry yeast (new jar) which I keep stored in my freezer. I used coarse sea salt to coat them before baking. I'll definitely try this one again but maybe a little more yeast, a longer rising time and a more gentle kneading. They went really well with spicy brown mustard!
THEN POST IT PLEASE ALFOAI am allergic to beer, but want to make a GREAT PERFECT soft pretzel so I can dip in warm creamy crab dip-yum so good
Turned out well! Will make again
Can't taste the beer. Waste of time. I have a better soft pretzel recipe that I got in elementary school.
AMAZING! Have been wanting to make pretzels at home for ages. Found various recipes over the years but they always seemed to have one random ingredient that I didn't have on-hand. For this recipe I used a non-alcoholic Amber beer and followed the recipe exactly. Oh my goodness, they are so easy to make and very very yummy. Taste just like a soft, chewy, salty pretzel should taste. Delicious! so glad I have one more bottle of beer at home so I can make another batch tonight! :)
Very good , Very easy . Slight beer taste, not overwhelming.
Delicious! My kids and I are devouring them. I have made pretzels with other recipes, and they are always good, but the beer in these adds to the yeastiness. Keep baking till they're nice and brown, not just a little.
I made these for my fiance and his buddy. They loved them so much they were asking for seconds! They make a great snack- soft and chewy. They are good plain or served with many different types of dips/cheeses.
