HOLY COW, these are AMAZING! I halved the recipe, used a whole packet of yeast, put half the flour in before allowing it to rise, added about 1/4 cup extra water and the remaining flour, salt, and baking soda. Kneaded it, cut it into 10 strips, shaped the pretzels, and followed the rest of the recipe. I brushed them with a well-beaten egg, dusted them with regular salt, and baked for 18 minutes. They came out perfectly, and my boyfriend, daughter, and I ate all but 3. :) Thanks for the recipe!
These are delicious! I skipped the rolling part, and just divided and rolled into ropes. Five stars all the way, from the ENTIRE family. Do you know how rare that is? Thanks for a great recipe! I don't know how "Philly" they are, but they are good!
I made this recipe and it was awful!! It must have been the unclear instructions on adding the flour. I wasn't sure how much to add in step one and how much to add in step two. Thanks anyway!
