Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Divide dough into 10 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 15-inch-long rope. To shape each pretzel, hold one end of a rope in each hand and form a U-shape. Cross the ends over each other and then twist. Then lift the ends across to the bottom of the U-shape; press to seal. Arrange shaped pretzels on the prepared baking sheet. Cover with waxed paper; let stand in a warm spot for 20 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small bowl stir together Parmesan, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Brush pretzels evenly with half of the melted butter then sprinkle with the Parmesan mixture.

  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until browned. Transfer baking sheet to a wire rack. Drizzle pretzels with the remaining melted butter. Serve warm or cool completely on baking sheet on a wire rack.

To Make Ahead:

Layer cooled pretzels between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days.
