Oh, and also they were crunchy! That's not the way I want a "soft pretzel" like you get at a ball game! UGH!

I was NOT impressed nor was any of my family! These simply tasted like salty crescent rolls--not yummy and chewy like a soft pretzel is supposed to be! I had printed this recipe out to use, but threw it away, because I will never make these again!

I was actually hoping to have them look like the ones in your picture, full and large and I thought they would be more like the ones purchased at a vender for bakery treats. I was not mush impressed. Taste wise, okay, but it wasn't worth heating up my oven for and by the way, you will need two baking sheets not one as that amount will not fit on one like in the directions.

To make this taste more like the store brand of pretzel, you need to dip the dough already shaped as a pretzel into a bath of baking soda then sprinkle with the course salt. Reserve the butter for after the pretzels are baked. This is how "Auntie Anne's" pretzels are prepared.

Great Recipe. However, the instructions for shaping the pretzels were very poor.

the kids loved playing with the dough. Making snakes..then shaping them into whatever shape they wanted. Skipped the mustard with 4 year olds...

Not likly to make again, I was thinking they would taste and look more like Aunt Annie's type of pretzels. Kids liked making the pretzel shape. I used real butter and I even put it on before placing in the oven and after baking. Still was not buttery and yummy. The dough soaked it up. Tasted just like a lightly buttered roll I thought.
