    Karen=^..^='s Note:

    I'm from Philly, so soft pretzels are all over, BUT these home-baked pretzels are awesome. They are more like a PA Dutch pretzel, a little softer and more airy.

      I made these last night and they were AMAZING!!! I too used about 1 cup less flour and only cooked them for 9 minutes a batch. I also didn't have any baking soda, so I used about 3 times the amount in baking powder. LOVE THEM!

      Thanks Karen for an easy to follow and delicsious recipe. This was so much fun with DGS, the pretzels in the photo arn't as prety as they should be - but as the DGS's did all the work you can see the fun they had. They weren't as soft as I expected but think I left them in the oven a little to long, or maybe I made them to thin, not sure. But we will certainly be making these again.
