Pretzel Ingredients

For the pretzels, you will need frozen dough, water, baking soda, and an egg.


Thaw the Dough

Thaw the dinner rolls on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. My rolls thawed were ready in 3 hours.


Filling Ingredients

For the filling you will need softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.


Cream Cheese Filling

Mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Add the filling to a large ziplock bag or piping bag. Set aside.


Fill the Pretzels

Roll our two balls of dough into a flattened rope. Pipe the sweet cream cheese filling down the center of the dough.


Roll the Dough

Cover the filling with the dough on either side and pinch the sides of the dough and ends together so no filling is showing.


Shape the Pretzels

Shape the dough into a pretzel shape by twisting the two ends together, then folding it over. Pinch the ends of the dough into the pretzel.


Baking Soda Bath

Boil the water and baking soda. Add a pretzel and let it soak in the boiling mixture for 45-60 seconds. Remove and place on a wire rack.


Apply Egg Wash

Beat an egg with a little bit of water, then use a pastry brush to apply the egg wash to the top of the pretzels.


Air Fry the Pretzels

Spray the basket with nonstick spray and place the pretzels inside. Air fry at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.


Topping Ingredients

For the cinnamon sugar topping, you will need melted butter, sugar, and cinnamon.


Add the Topping

Mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl. Apply the melted butter to the pretzels with a pastry brush, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.


Enjoy the Pretzels

Enjoy your warm pretzels fresh from the air fryer! You can even add a dipping sauce like hot fudge, warm chocolate ganache, or caramel sauce!
