I've been craving "ballpark" pretzels (thicker and slightly crustier than the mall ones) and I figured it was probably easier to make them than drive around until I found one! I just made these and they taste amazing! They're a little softer on the outside than I prefer, but the taste and texture of the inside is perfect. If I can get the outside a little chewier, they'll be absolutely perfect. Maybe I didn't boil them long enough? I slid them back in the oven (which I had already turned off) for a few minutes and they're a little better. Not sure what else to try, but I'll definitely make these again!
I did have to add an additional 3/4-1 cup of flour, but they rolled and shaped beautifully. I cut the dough into 8 balls, formed one, put it in the water, then rolled the next one out. As soon as the next was rolled into a long rope, I flipped the boiling one, then formed the rolled one. As soon as it was formed, I put the boiled one upside-down on a paper towel and immediately flipped it right-side-up onto a Silpat on a baking sheet. I sprinkled it with kosher salt and put the next one in the water, then repeated the process. The timing of this worked for me. Thanks so much for this fabulous recipe!!
