Great pretzels! Loved the flavor and dough was easy to work with but I need practice folding the pretzels. Served with beer cheese soup and was a great compliment to the soup.
Earlier this year I hosted an Oktoberfest party. I looked through several recipes before deciding to use this one. It isn't too difficult to make at all and the pretzels come out quite nicely. Since I was making them for a large party, I made pretzel bites instead of the large pretzels. I just rolled out the dough, cut it into 1" pieces, and shortened the baking time slightly. They came out great and were a big hit at Oktoberfest.
Loved these pretzels and so did the family! I used Rapid Rise yeast and let the dough rise for about 15 minutes. I separated the dough into about 32 pieces, rolled out into "snakes" and wrapped them around bamboo skewers to make twists. My goal was to create a birthday snack for my son to take to school. These are "pretzel snakes." I boiled them on the skewers. I removed the skewers and baked in the oven. I decorated with some melted chocolate to make eyes and a tongue.
Oh gosh what a great homemade pretzel recipe, I have tryed many different recipes in the past I have to say this one is the best yet and I am so pleased to have found this recipe, I made no ingredient changes which is vary rare for me, I did however rise it in a pre-warmed oven, I plan on making this many more times, thank you for sharing 2Bleu!...Kitten:)
These turned out perfect in both texture and flavor, but I would slightly modify the recipe so it would not only work better with the website's scaling system, but you would need significantly less water, baking powder and only one egg. Instead of a massive roasting pot that has room for a freaking gallon of water, I would use something shallower like my 3 quart pot and put only 4 cups of water and 1½ tablespoons of baking soda. The roasting pot I used made my pretzels unravel and it was a pain in the ass getting them out with only a spatula. You also don't need to use pure egg yolk, I just scrambled one egg and still had some leftover. Also, take it easy on the rock salt. I ended up picking off a lot of mine.
Made these for a family gathering. Everyone loved them. Easy recipe, great results. I'll be making these again!
YUMMY!!! I think I have a food baby in my tummy. That was delicious, I coated the dough with Baking Pam and made pizza pockets out of it. I added muenster cheese, mozzarella cheese, and havarti cheese. Toppings on top of the dough I brushed egg wash and used a little garlic salt with Italian seasoning with parmesan cheese. Perfect to kill off your hunger for awhile until dinner time.
These were great!
These were good! Quick, simple, and a fun rainy afternoon activity for the kids...thanks for the recipe! We'll be making them again.
