I followed this recipes exactly as it is written... That being said, these were so easy to make and they were delicious! The bread machine does most of the work. When coming out of the bread machine's dough cycle the doughnwas quite sticky, but I managed to dump it out on to a floured counter. The dough was really airy and easy to work with. I divided the dough into 10 pieces so that I had an equal amount for my family to eat. I rolled them in my hands and twisted them into a pretzel shape and lightly pressed down on them. Once they were all shaped I added 2 at a time to a stockpot filled with the water and baking soda. Waited 15 seconds and dried them all on paper towels. Baked them on a baking sheet sprayed with vegetable oil spray for 8 minutes. They are crispy but not too hard on the outside and the inside is soft, airy and chewy. A hint of sweetness, but not over powering. I had a problem getting salt to stick after baking so I may try adding the salt before baking - and there will definitely be a next time, if I had more flour, I would be making another batch right now!
