Homemade Soft Pretzels

After talking about doing this for quite some time, I finally made homemade soft pretzels last night. I didn't believe the hype about how easy they were to make but I followed this easy recipe and it only took 30 minutes to prepare and bake these great snacks. To mix it up, I made mini versions and paired them with a vegetarian curry soup similar to this one as a substitute for naan. They were a huge hit and I will definitely be making them again!

  1. Looks like that batch made quite a few. I will gladly accept a bag of those this weekend :)

    I have such fond memories of making these in elementary school. I'll have to pull out my old recipe, or use yours!

  2. one bag of soft pretzels coming your way and this was a great recipe, you should try it!

  3. I meant to tell you we made these a few weeks ago, early in the morning, on a day when I was solo parenting the two. They were great. E made a "man." Basically he pounded his piece until I was done rolling the others, and then we baked his roundish "pretzel" guy. It all tasted the same!
