This is very similar to the Top Secret Recipes soft pretzels I'm familiar with so I'll give some tips I learned from that one. First, if you're having trouble with the shaping of the dough, as in the rope not wanting to form to the proper length, simply walk away for 5-10 minutes. This allows the dough to rest and it should be easier to work. Second, I found the soda bath to be too lenghty. It made the outside crack if I left it in that long. I think it's essential to the taste I prefer and it helps in browning, so I modified to just dipping them in for a few seconds on each side. This made a better pretzel for me. Also note that these can be frozen just like the ones bought in the store, then rubbed with a damp paper towel, salted and microwaved for 45-60 seconds for a quick home made snack! Hope this helps, folks!

OH, let me try that! October 15, 2007

I had an itch to make pretzels last night while it was raining and I found this recipe. I LOVED IT! I brought what my husband left into work and they were devoured quickly and left everyone with a smile on their face. Thank you!

I made it on a whim one day, trying something different for the Football fans here. It worked out great. I topped it with Seasalt, but didnt overdue it. I served it with melted butter. Big Hit. Another Sunday and they have asked for it again.

These came out nice--first time making pretzels. I used my bread machine for the dough; came out a little wet, but I just added a little extra flour when rolling it out. I used sea salt on the top and that really added to the flavor.

this was hard to make. it tasted dull with no flavor at all. when boiling in the baking soda water it left a baking soda taste on the pretzels. I'm not going to make this again

These were great! I made the dough in breadmaker too. After second rising and boiling I put a little egg wash on them and sprinkled with salt and seeds. Baked 12 min. as directed, but set on 450F. Fantastic!

I made the dough in my bread machine and then picked up at step #6. Easy to make and very yummy. We all enjoyed them!

This is the first time I have tried making pretzels. They turned out great! It was fun making them also. Just be careful on putting too much salt on it. I kind of over did it. I make a good sweet and sour sauce to dip it in. Yummy! I love this site!
