  • Dust the dough with flour, and place in a plastic bag. Seal the bag, leaving room for the dough to expand. Let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  • Spray work surface with cooking spray. Transfer rested dough to work surface. Divide dough into 8 equal pieces, about 2 1/2 ounces each. Roll each piece into a long thin rope, 28 to 30 inches long. Twist each rope into a pretzel. Dip each pretzel in warm water. Place on prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle lightly with pretzel salt. Let rest, uncovered, for 10 minutes.

  • Bake until golden brown, 8 to 9 minutes. Remove from oven, and brush thoroughly with melted butter. Continue to brush until you have used all of the butter. Serve warm, or reheat in a warm oven.
