This is a great mall pretzel recipe! These are great for snacking during a game or a movie. I made mine huge; no one had to come back for seconds. I save an old cinnamin spice container and I fill it with a mix of cinnamin and sugar. I brushed the pretzels with butter (right on the cookie sheet) then I sprinkled it with the cinn. and sugar combo. Kids were dipping their ends of the pretzels into what was left of the cookie sheet - it was funny to watch.

The best soft pretzel recipe I"ve tried! The dough was so easy to work with and rolled out nice & thin. These aren't going to last long in my house!

Absolutely incredible! We ended up having to knead the dough a bit and had to add more water, but these were just perfect! There's a Dutch Farmer's Market in Annapolis that makes pretzels. They also stuff their pretzel dough with things like hotdogs and cheese; bacon, eggs, and cheese and sausage, eggs and cheese. We made some of the hotdog ones and they came out great! Thanks for sharing this!

Heavenly, amazing, delicious...and OH SO EASY! I swirled them into little buns and used them for sandwiches in my kids lunchbox this week. They were amazing! And so yummy right out of the oven! A REAL KEEPER!

Wow.. this is an outstanding recipe. Perfect taste. Perfect texture to the dough. We have an Amish Market near us and I've watched them make the stuffed pretzels (Pepperoni & Cheese) and pretzel dogs. So of course I tried this at home and they were awesome! My kids and in-laws devoured them. I rolled out some 8"x8" squares to roll up the pretzel dogs. Did the same for a few pizza rolls (sliced pepperoni and shredded mozzarella). WOW! Next up, CRAB PRETZELS. This dough is perfect for experimenting..

I made these on Saturday (for my family) and then again on Monday(for a coworker). These are sooo awesome fresh out of the oven. I need to practice getting that pretzel shape down. I ended up making mine into pretzel nuggets and used marinara for dipping sauce. These definitely are easy to make and delicious too. I made them as directed without any problems. Thank you for the recipe! :) We will be making these again and again. UPDATE: Made these again and they were just as excellent as before. The neighborhood kids would not stay out of my kitchen asking for more as well as my own kids. I had to make them all go outside or hubby wouldn't have had any by the time he got home :) Easy to make and delish. My 10 yr old son helped to make them this time. We made nuggets since they were easier to make.

I couldn't have asked for anything better with my first attempt at making soft pretzels, this recipe was very easy to accomplish and the results were fabulous. The perfect balance of tender and chewy, and extremely tasty, thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

Amazing! I made these today for the family. I halfed the recipe and got 8 medium pretzels (4 with coarse salt and 4 cinnamon/sugar). The recipe could not be simpler. I didn't have bread flour so I used all purpose and they came out wonderful. Do watch closely in the oven, as they cook fast! Thanks for the perfect pretzel. I will be making these again!

i would never have believed it if somebody had told me how easy these were to make! i've been putting it off forever but had promised my 6yo daughter we'd give it a try and they were a huge hit! delish, easy, and pretty quick. even my 2yo helped out a little. i did have to add more liquid, but we live in a dry, high altitude place so that may be why. they're not nearly as good the next day, and all the salt dissolved after a bit, but i'm going to try to re-heat them in the oven to crisp them up and add a little more salt on top (we like them salty! yum!) these'll be a definite regular around here, thanks!

so soft and cute...I didn't want to over mix the dough so I left it kinda stringy but as I let it rise it all came together...I made half the batch with hot dogs...I boiled frozen hot dogs but only half way cooked then dipped the ropes of dough in the dipping solution before I wrapped it around the dogs...they came out perfect!...you must try it...the only thing I might change next time is add a little more sugar I like a little sweeter dough but thats just me...will make again for sure!
