Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzels


Hello again! It’s Alicia from The Baker Upstairs, and I have another delicious treat to share with you today. These cinnamon sugar soft pretzels are so soft and chewy, buttery and sweet, and amazingly delicious! They are one of my family’s favorite treats, and I’m excited to share the recipe with you!


When I was in high school, one of my first jobs was working in the china and crystal department at a big department store in the mall. I helped brides choose their registry items, watched people endlessly debate about one flatware set versus another, and sold crystal vases worth more than my car. 🙂 It was a pretty fun job most of the time, but there were times when it was incredibly slow. Sometimes a whole hour would pass without any customers coming into my area, and by the time I had worked there a couple of months, I had the entire tape of music that was played over the PA system memorized. One of the bright spots on a slow night was my break, when I would walk down to the mall food court and buy a soft pretzel and a soda.


Maybe it was just because I was a teenager working for the first time, and relishing the independence it provided, but I swear, nothing had ever tasted as good as those pretzels. They were fresh from the oven, buttery and hot, and so delicious! It was always a really tough choice to decide between a hot salted pretzel with cheese sauce, or a warm and sweet cinnamon sugar pretzel. I loved them both! These cinnamon sugar soft pretzels remind me of those lovely pretzels I enjoyed from the mall all those years ago, but they’re even better because they’re homemade! These days, I bake them with my children, and get to see the joy on their faces as they discover how delicious a hot pretzel can be.


Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzels

Ingredients;
for the pretzels;
  • 2 cups warm milk
  • 1½ tablespoons yeast
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4½ cups flour, more or less as needed

for the topping;
  • ⅓ cup baking soda
  • 3 cups warm water
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Instructions;
  • In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk. When the mixture is bubbly, mix in the brown sugar, butter, one cup flour, and salt, and mix until combined.
  • Add the remaining flour, one cup at a time, and mix until a smooth and slightly sticky dough forms. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise about one hour, until doubled in size.
  • After the dough has risen, preheat the oven to 450. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Divide the dough into twelve equal sized pieces, and roll each piece into a long skinny rope. Twist into a pretzel shape.
