King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Soft Pretzels

This recipe is straight out of the King Arthur Flour website.  King Arthur makes a great gluten free flour that you can order off their website..or some grocery stores do carry it.  Having the flour mixture saves buying a lot of different flours and mixing your own.  We are still dabbling in the gluten free recipe world and trying to find recipes that work for us.

Water bath

  • 4 quarts water
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Mix the flour, brown sugar, yeast, salt, xanthan gum and baking powder together in a large bowl.  Mix together the water, egg and soft butter in another bowl.  Pour the water mixture into the flour mixture and beat for 4 minutes.  Knead 4 minutes.  Put into  a buttered bowl and allow to raise for 45-90 minutes, or until doubled in size.

Punch down dough, form into 12 pieces.  Roll each piece into a long rope about 12" long.  Shape into a pretzel by crossing over the two ends and then tucking the ends under the pretzel shape.

Bring a large pot of water to boil, add the baking soda and sugar.  When the foam subsides, add one pretzel at a time into the water bath for 5 seconds.  Remove and place on a parchment lined or greased cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with coarse salt.  Bake at 425 for 20 minutes for soft pretzels, 25 minutes for chewier pretzels, and 30 minutes for hard pretzels.
