Pumpkin Pretzel Recipe
Recipe type: Appetizer
Pretzel Dough
  • ½ cup of coconut milk (or regular milk works too) warm but not hot
  • 1 package (2½ teaspoons) of dry yeast
  • 3½ cups of flour
  • ¼ cup of brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • ⅔ cup of pumpkin puree (not pie filler)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of oil or melted butter
To boil the pretzels
  • 1 large pot of water
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 package of cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  1. In a small bowl combine the warm coconut (or regular) milk and the yeast. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Place 1 cup of the flour, the brown and white sugar and pumpkin pie spice in the bottom of an electric mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.
  3. Add the pumpkin, egg and oil. Using a dough hook mix until well combined.
  4. Gradually add the rest of the flour until you have a dough that is soft but not sticky.
  5. Form the dough into a ball, lightly cover with oil, place in a bowl and cover with a towel Set aside to rise until double in size (about an hour).
  6. While the dough is rising bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the baking soda and reduce to a simmer.
  7. Cut the dough into small pieces and roll into about 5 inch strips. Put a few twists into the dough strips.
  8. Working with 3 or 4 strips at a time (depending on the size of your pot) place in the water and baking soda for 30 second.
  9. Remove and place on a prepared baking sheet. If the twists come out while in the water bath just retwist on the baking sheet.
  10. Preheat your oven to 450.
  11. Add 1 tablespoon of water to the beaten egg. Beat lightly with a fork until a little frothy.
  12. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon.
  13. Using a pastry brush brush each pretzel with the egg wash and sprinkle each with the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  14. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly browned (the tops will brown quicker because of the egg and sugar).
  15. Cool on wire racks.
  16. To make the dip beat the cream cheese, brown sugar and cinnamon until light and fluffy.
