Wonderful snack! The hardest part about making these pretzels was getting them into the pretzel shape :) I made half with Parmesan and half with kosher salt ~ I think I liked the ones with the Parmesan best. We took the idea from the other reviewer and dipped in pizza sauce. Thanks you for posting!! Made for Pick~A~Chef, Spring 2008.

Very good!! I did one tray with kosher salt, one with parmesan cheese, and one with parmesan and cheddar cheese. The cheese ones were definitely better. I think next time I'll increase the amount of cheese in the dough too! Also, 8-10 minutes was more than enuff time in my oven. The first try was over brown by 15 minutes.

The family loved these. We dipped them in pizza sauce with a little cheese added in. Next time I think I will make pretzel sticks, it was a little time consuming rolling them out and getting them just perfect but when they came out of the oven they were beautiful and delicious!
