Pretzel Rolls

Recipe by Coraniaid
READY IN: 1hr 55mins
YIELD: 15 Rolls




  • In a small container, mix yeast with warmed milk and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Whisk 5 3/4 cups of flour and teaspoon of salt in a large bowl.
  • Add canola oil and warmed water to yeast mixture.
  • Pour into bowl with flour and salt.
  • Knead in the bowl until dough is mostly smooth. Only add more flour if your dough cannot be easily handled. The dough will be somewhat stiff.
  • Cover the bowl with a dish towel and put in a warm place to rise for one hour.
  • Punch down dough and knead in bowl for one minute.
  • Cut dough into 15 pieces. (Cut more pieces if you would like smaller size rolls.) Form balls by pulling the dough under.
  • Place on a well-greased surface.
  • Let the dough balls rise for 15 minutes.
  • While the dough balls are rising, preheat the oven to 400 degrees and get the pretzel "bath" ready.
  • In a large pot, bring water, salt, and baking soda to a rolling boil.
  • Plunge three dough balls into the water and let them "poach" for 1 minute total.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a well-greased baking sheet.
  • With a serrated knife, cut 2-3 lines across each roll and sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until pretzels are a rich brown.
