You know you're from Pennsylvania if you can bake your own pretzels.
I did so for the first time today using this recipe, and they turned out great!
It's sooo easy. You'll love these...and your kids can help!
Here is the recipe for "Buttery Soft Pretzels" from Allrecipes.com
Here are a few changes that I made to the recipe
based on the comments of people who also tried it:
a. I added way more water to the recipe to make it more doughy...like an extra cup. (I also doubled the recipe).
b. I preheated the oven to 410 degrees and baked it for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
c. I brushed melted butter over pretzels about a minute before they were finished baking.
d. I made some into pretzel bites.
