    Impera_Magna's Note:

    Posted in response to a request for a recipe for hard pretzels. EDITED TO ADD: After seeing Marlene's photo and reading her review, I just had to try this recipe immediately. Made soft preztels w/ my granddaughter this morning and they were both easy and good. From start to finish, it didn't take very long at all. A great project to do w/ kids!

      Dissolve yeast in water, add salt and sugar.

      Brush pretzels with beaten egg, sprinkle with coarse salt.
    6. 6
      Bake in a 425 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, or until brown. These do not keep long.

      These pretzels will stay good for months in a tight container.

      Ok, I wouldn't give my pretzel shaping technique 5 stars by any means , as you can see by the photo LOL but the recipe is a winner! Very easy to prepare , instructions are crystal clear, and the best part is, I can have homemade soft yummy pretzels whenever the urge strikes , as I always have these ingredients on hand! Thanks so much for submitting this recipe Impera Magna!

      i made these b/c marlene said they are easy to make with children. i did substitute 1/2 of the flour for whole wheat and then added some fun toppings like cinammon and sugar, pizza seasoning, and garlic powder. They turned out great and my children loved them!! Do not try to roll out on floured surface b/c it doesn't work and make them about 2 feet long and they turn out just like Auntie Annie's.

      Easy, delicious and so so good for kids to help with! We made these specifically because they didn't require boiling. While the texture isn't JUST like a traditional soft pretzel, they are good enough that you don't care. We will make these again for sure! Thanks for sharing!
