Auntie Ann's Pretzels

Auntie Ann's Pretzels



  • 1 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 1/8 tsp. active yeast (1 1/2 pkg)
  • 2 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 1 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 3 cups regular flour

Baking soda water bath

  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2 Tbs. baking soda


  • 2-4 Tbs. butter (melted)
  • To taste coarse salt


  1. Sprinkle yeast on lukewarm water in mixing bowl; stir to dissolve.
  2. Add sugar, salt, and stir to dissolve; add flour and knead dough until smooth and elastic. Let rise at least 1/2 hour.
  3. While dough is rising, prepare a baking soda water bath with 2 cups warm water and 2 Tbs. baking soda. Be certain to stir often.
  4. After dough has risen, pinch off bits of dough and roll into a long rope (about 1/2 inch or less thick) and shape.
  5. Dip pretzel into soda solution and place on greased baking sheet. Allow pretzel to rise again.
  6. Bake in a 450 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until golden. Brush with melted butter, and coarse salt if desired and enjoy!
  7. Variation: For Auntie Anne's famous cinnamon sugar, try melting a stick of butter in a shallow bowl( big enough to fit the entire pretzel) and in another bowl, make a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
  8. Dip the pretzel into the butter, coating both sides generously, then dip again into the cinnamon mixture.
