The Only Pretzel Rolls Recipe You'll Ever Need
- 1 1/4 cup warm water
- 1 Tbsp yeast
- 3 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
- 3/4 c. powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. vegetable oil
Pretzel Roll Bath
- 2 c. hot water
- 1/4 c. baking soda
- melted butter/ kosher salt
- Mix water/yeast. Cover and let it rest for 10 minutes or until it is foamy.
- Mix dry ingredients together. Slowly add water/yeast mixture and oil. Mix until a soft dough forms. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
- Spray bowl with non stick cooking spray and return dough to bowl. Cover loosely with a towel and let raise until doubled, about an hour.
- Make a bath for the pretzel rolls by combining the baking soda with hot water and stir until soda is mostly dissolved (it won't dissolve completely).
- When dough is done with the first rise, separate into 16 balls, dip each roll in the baking soda bath and place on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Let rise in a warm spot for 35 minutes.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 15-18 minutes, until GOLDEN brown on top.
