Hot Buttered Fluffy Pretzels Ingredients: For the Dough:
    12.5 oz  all purpose flour, (2.5 cups)
    1/2 tsp  sea salt
    1 tsp  sugar
    2.25 tsp  instant quick rise yeast
    1 cup  warm water, (110 degrees F)
For the Topping:
    1/2 cup  warm water
    1 tbsp  baking soda
vegetable oil for greasing the sheet pan
      coarse sea salt, for sprinkling
    3 tbsp  unsalted butter, melted


Combine all the dough ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer, and mix with the paddle attachment until somewhat combined (or just mix by hand with a wooden spoon). Change to the dough hook and knead on medium low for 5 minutes. The dough should feel soft and smooth, not sticky to the touch.
Lightly dust the dough with flour, then place in a ziploc bag and let the dough rise for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F, and lightly grease a baking sheet with vegetable oil. You could also do parchment paper if you can find one that's rated high enough (most parchment papers I've seen only go up to 420 degrees F).
Remove the dough from the bag and place onto a lightly oiled countertop. Divide the dough into 8 pieces (just cut it with a knife).
Whisk to combine the warm water and baking soda and cook in the microwave for 1 minute. FYI it's not going to dissolve completely, and that's okay.
Roll each of the eight pieces into a long rope, and shape each one into a pretzel (see the step-by-step photos on the blog post to see how to do this).
Dip each pretzel into the soda wash and place onto the greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt, then let them rest for 10 minutes.
Bake for 9 to 10 minutes until the pretzels are golden brown. Brush the pretzels with the melted butter while they are hot out of the oven, so the bread can soak up all the buttery goodness. Mmm.
Enjoy while they are hot, and keep in mind these don't taste as amazing the next day. So this pretty much means that you're allowed to eat all of them now =) Enjoy!
