Original recipe yields 18 pretzels



  1. Measure first 6 ingredients in order listed into baking pan. Select: Dough/Pasta Setting and press start.
  2. When the cycle is complete remove dough to a lightly floured surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to handle. Roll into a 14X9 inch rectangle. With a sharp knife, cut into eighteen 14X1/2 inch strips. Gently pull each strip into a rope 16 inches long. To shape into pretzels: Curve ends of each rope to make a circle; cross ends at top. Twist ends once and lay over bottom of circle. Place on greased baking sheets. DO NOT LET RISE.
  3. Combine lightly beaten egg and 1tablespoon water; brush on pretzels. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 18-20 minutes or until done. Remove from sheets and let pretzels cool on wire rack. Enjoy!

These were not soft/chewy but hard and dry ! The dough was very easy to handle.



This makes wonderful pretzels with a great taste and texture. They should be eaten fresh or they will get hard.



I have to wonder if people leaving negative reviews expected boiled pretzels. The leathery, really chewy taste of pretzels is usually because the pretzels have been boiled before baking. It is essentially the same process for bagels as it is for pretzels: boil water and baking soda, and boil the pretzel for approximately 30 sec-1 min in the boiling water, then transfer to a baking sheet and bake as directed. That will get you the chewiness a lot of us expect from pretzels. These are a decent, basic pretzel that are so easy bc they are made in the bread machine. You could also make these in the Kitchen Aid mixer as well. I like the slicing part of this recipe--I didn't even bother rolling the slices and they baked up beautifully. I didn't want to do an egg wash, so I used water and then broiled for about a minute to get a darker crust. These are pretzels you want to serve with mustard or butter for dipping--as written, they are a bit bland. Thanks for the recipe!
