Absolutely fantastic! After reading the other reviews, I wasn't really sure what to expect, but the recipe was perfect as is. The only thing was that I only had to add 3 1/2 cups a/p flour (I didn't have any bread flour left). I also cooked them in the middle rack in a convection oven on parchment for 7 minutes, which gave them a very nice, even browning. No burnt bottoms here! And I had absolutely no problem with the dough being overly sticky. The finished product turned out deliciously perfect. I think some of the people having problems may not have enough experience with making bread products. Bread can be very finicky (altitude, ambient temperature, humidity all make a difference), and after many years of making breads, personally, I know what to look for consistancy-wise. As you're kneading the dough (exactly 8 minutes for me), it should be tacky, but not sticky (kind of like the same tackiness as the sticky side of Post-It Notes), and very smooth. They rolled out beautifully as a nice, thin rope, too. I will be using this recipe over and over again, as I LOVE soft pretzels! Thanks for posting! And for those of you that they did't work out for... try again! They're awesome when you get them right!!
