Who doesn’t love gluten free soft pretzels? These pretzels are soft, chewy, salty, and gluten free to boot! With our new drive through window open for our gluten free bakery, our team decided to experiment with a new recipe. We hope you enjoy these gluten free soft pretzels! Please let us know how yours come out by sharing with us online using #gorgeglutenfree
First, gather all of your ingredients and preheat your oven to 425F to get these gluten free pretzels rolling. Combine the flour, sugar, yeast, salt, xanthan gum, and baking powder. Add the water, egg, and butter and stir until it forms a firm dough. This will take about four minutes in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. If the dough seems dry, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water.
Next, knead your dough until smooth, and then transfer to a lightly greased bowl. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, 45-90 minutes.
After your dough has risen, bring four quarts of water to a boil. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface. Gently deflate, and divide into twelve equal pieces for your gluten free pretzels. Cover the pieces. One at a time, roll them into 12” ropes. Shape the ropes into pretzels and place them on a parchment lined sheet pan.
