Calories 145kcal


  • 1 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 Tbsp. yeast
  • 3 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon vegetable oil

Pretzel Roll Bath

  • 2 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup 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.
  • Brush with melted butter.



These can be baked and then frozen. Thaw on the counter the day you’d like to serve them with dinner.
