These babies were described as ‘incredible’ and didn’t even last 10 minutes after I took them out of the oven. Let me tell you, they’re one of the BEST things you’ll EVER make!
It’s like a big, fat and puffy cinnamon roll married a soft pretzel and this was their offspring. Eating one of these is like eating the middle of a cinnamon roll with all its gooey and saucy goodness. Basically it’s like the perfect cinnamon roll treat since you’re pretty much just eating the middle of the roll! Drizzled with a creamy cream cheese glaze… you’ll be taken to cinnamon roll heaven with each bite. 🙂
Making them couldn’t be easier. I took a few pics to help guide you with shaping the pretzels but it’s all very straight forward. Sorry they’re not great but my kitchen light doesn’t like to be nice most of the time and I like to prepare my rolls at night.
Start by making and rising the dough. Then after you’ve punched it down, divide into 8 balls.
Take each ball (cover the resting balls as you work with each one) and roll into an 18 inch rope.
Brush the length of the rope generously with melted butter on all the sides. Sprinkle on the filling until the whole rope is covered with it.
Take the rope and form into an open circle.
Hold the two ends and cross them over each other once and then a second time.
Holding each tip, just pull it straight down and use some butter to ‘glue’ it to the pretzel.
Place onto a floured baking tray and repeat with the remaining balls of dough. Cover well and rise until puffy.
Now we’re going to brush each pretzel with just a little bit of whipping cream. This helps bake them up extra soft and creamy.
Make the glaze as the pretzels are baking and then drizzle away once they’re baked and out of the oven.
So so good you guys!! 🙂
I actually preferred the fatter ones, I like my rolls extra puffy and fluffy 😉 and the best part about these is that you can pick them up and eat them by hand like an actual pretzel!
You can also make them smaller if you want but I don’t recommend making more than 10 so they don’t lose any of their fluff.
Enjoy my sweet friends! and tag me with your pics @dutchbakerblog on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
