Pumpkin Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzels
  • 1⅓ cups Warm Water, 110 degrees
  • 1 Tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 4 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Water
  • ⅓ cup Baking Soda
To Coat Pretzels
  • ¼ cup Butter, melted
  • ¼ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
Frosting for Dipping
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Milk
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet. In a medium bowl, combine the warm water, honey, and yeast. Whisk and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl whisk the flour, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Add in the pumpkin puree and your yeast mixture. Mix on medium until combined.
  3. Place your dough onto a well floured surface. Knead the dough a few times and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  4. Roll your dough into a log and cut into 12 pieces. Roll out each piece until about 24 inches. Twist into a pretzel shape. Lightly wet the ends of your pretzel dough with your finger so the dough sticks to itself.
  5. In a large pot, fill with about 4 inches of water. Bring to a boil and then slowly sprinkle in your baking soda. Drop your pretzels one at a time into the water. Leave for 30 seconds and then remove to a paper towel to dry. Place your pretzels on your prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes until golden brown.
  6. In a small bowl whisk together the cinnamon and sugar. Brush melted butter onto your pretzels and then dip them in the cinnamon/sugar.
  7. In a medium bowl beat together the sugar, vanilla, and cream cheese until smooth. Add in 2 tablespoons of milk and mix and add more milk until you like the consistency. Enjoy!
