Delicious giant pretzels — ready to eat in about 30 minutes!


  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 5 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • coarse salt to taste


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Mix water and sugar together in a bowl until sugar is dissolved; add yeast. Let mixture stand until yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.

Whisk flour, butter, and salt together in a bowl until well mixed; add yeast mixture and stir with a fork until dough starts to cling. Turn dough onto a floured work surface and knead until smooth.

Cut dough into 15 equal pieces and roll each piece between your hands into rope shapes at least the thickness of a pencil. Twist dough into desired shapes and arrange on a baking sheet; brush with egg and sprinkle coarse salt over each.

Bake in the preheated oven until pretzels are browned and cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes.
