By far, the easiest soft pretzel recipe I have ever made. I addaed just a bit of garlic powder to the dough. Although I admit that I do need some practice on my "pretzel-shaping" skills, they still turned out wonderful (a little deformed/lol). I also like them dipped in ketchup or marinara sauce. Thanks, Inez, for another wonderful recipe! ~Manda

Very very easy and yummy! My first attempt making pretzels. Mine were done in about 10 minutes. I made them into pretzel "ropes" since there was no way I could make the standard pretzel shape! Thanks!

This is such an easy recipe; i made it this afternoon. I added some oregono (i remember seeing them in all pretzels) and served it with katchup and cheddar. you are right, the kids love them! i froze the rest; i think they will keep well for a week or so.
