Homemade Pretzel Bites

 I found this homemade pretzel recipe on a friend’s blog, it is so good I had to make it two days in a row. The first day friends stopped by and loved them so much. I had to make more for my son. Like almost everything else I make, I know what is going in it so I’m finding it harder to eat out.


1 1/4 cup warm water
1 T. plus 1/4 tsp. yeast
3 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. + 2 T powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vegetable oil

2 c. warm water
1/4 c. baking soda

Mix water/yeast let sit for 10 minutes

 add dry ingredients, knead for 8 minutes in kitchen aid,
Not sure by hand as I’m not the best at that.

raise until double.

     Ready for salt bath.

When dough is done, preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Make a bath for the pretzels by combining the baking soda with warm water and stir until soda is mostly dissolved (it won't dissolve completely).

Roll out dough. Using a pizza cutter, cut into small 2" sections. Dip each dough square into the water/soda bath and place on a greased baking sheet. If you are making salted or garlic pretzels, sprinkle with kosher salt.

Bake for 4 minutes, then rotate pan and bake another 4 minutes.

Always brush with butter when they come out of the oven. There are so many ways you can make these. Garlic and salt,  

 For cinnamon/sugar pretzels, brush with butter AFTER baking and then roll in cinnamon/sugar.

Sorry I didn't get a photo of them finished, they are gone so fast. Maybe next time.
