10
cups water
1/4
cup baking soda

1
tablespoon water
1
can Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.

Expert Tips

Pretzels get their delicious, dark brown crust from being poached in a high Ph solution, and in this case it’s the baking soda added to the water.

For a new flavor twist, substitute shredded fresh Parmesan cheese for the salt.
