What you will need for boiling and baking the pretzels:

- cooling rack
Yields 8 hot delicious pretzels
Step 1: Mix
Add the flour, warm water, salt, butter and yeast to the stand mixer bowl with dough hook. Knead on medium speed until the dough is completely mixed. Then, increase the speed to high until the dough forms a ball around the hook.
Step 2: Divide
Remove the dough ball from the stand mixer, cover and let rest for about 5 minutes. Then, divide the ball into 8 smaller dough balls and let rest for another 5 minutes.
Step 3: Roll
Roll each dough ball out into a 16-inch long rope.
Step 4: Twist
Form the long rope into a “U” shape. Cross the ends twice to make a twist. Bring the ends to the bottom of the “U,” and press ends into place.
