Soft Homemade Pretzels Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
I have perfected this recipe already. My recipe changes are as follows. I do not use shortening at all. Another tip to better pretzels is heat a pot of boiling water. I use an upside down cookie sheet with paper and after the dough raises I put the Pretzels in a bath of boiling water and baking soda for about 10 to 30 seconds. Then I put them on the parchment paper and brush them with egg whites and salt them and bake at a higher temperature of 425 to really get a crunchy and chewy pretzel.

Two things: 1. For me, the amount of flour is excessive, so I would only add a little as I go otherwise I believe you will end up with a very stiff, unworkable dough. 2. The baking time was much more than listed on the recipe, so adjust the time according to your oven as every oven is different. But, having said that, how could you not enjoy homemade pretzels?

Wayyy too much flour. They taste ok but they're not very attractive. Dough separates when trying to roll out.

Don't use eggs!!! They pooled around the bottem then started to burn making a horrible taste and smell. Other than that they were great! They had a hard crust which I didn't really like but it wasn't bad. Will try making a moister dough to avoid the crust and putting butter on instead of eggs. Yummy!

Well--THAT was EASY! I agree that there is a little too much flour--so I think that the next time, I'll start with three cups and add a touch more if needed. Other than that, the recipe was my first attempt with yeast and a bread-type dough. I wanted soft and golden pretzels, so the egg wash was my preferred method. I won't win awards for their looks, but these did disappear quickly. : )
