      Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead until the dough is no longer sticky.

      What a treat! These pretzels are awesome. The recipe is very easy and the pretzels came out so soft and gorgeous inside with a bit of a crispy chew on the outside. I will absolutely make these again! Thanks for sharing the recipe Chef Shelby, I appreciate it. Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
