I have a pretzel recipe I usually use, but decided to try this one. I changed the recipe a little based on other reviews and what I had on hand: I swapped out 1 cup of flour for whole wheat flour, and didn't use the whole 5 cups - more likely 4-ish (just enough so dough wasn't sticky). I used only one packet yeast (2 1/4 tsp) and substituted a melted butter/margarine blend for the vegetable oil. These have good flavor and are soft/tender. My other recipe turns out chewier with a harder crust, which I tend to prefer, but these are great if you like a really soft pretzel! Also, I've found that if you're not concerned about having these look like pretzels, it's easier to divide the dough into 24 pieces and make pretzel 'sticks'. Either way, make sure to stick parchment or waxed paper on top of your baking sheet - the baking soda wash baked onto metal is a pain to get off.
