This is adapted from a Stefano Faita recipe. The pretzels are fast, easy to make, no boiling & no rising time. Bake one cookie sheet of pretzels while forming the rest of them. While a true pretzel fanatic will say, but they aren't boiled so they aren't a real pretzel, I say try them. They are soft, salty, slightly chewy & got thumbs up from my biggest critics, my kids. They are best fresh, serve with some mustard or a bit of cheese sauce for dipping. If you want a sweet pretzel omit the salt sprinkle, brush with some melted butter after baked & shake in a sugar & cinnamon mixture.
