I kind of messed this up because I did not roll the dough small enough or make the pretzels large enough. You need to roll it down to less then 1/2 inch. I had a hard time getting it as small as I did. Anyway the "Pretzels" came out looking like freeform biscuits. They did taste ok and I even served some without salt on top as dinner rolls they were very good nice and crispy great taste.
