I’ve been on a huge baking and cooking kick lately (as you can tell by all the recipe posts) and I found an awesome soft pretzel recipe I wanted to share with you all!

Every Wednesday there is a farmer’s market in Decorah and if I’m in town I always stop and get a soft pretzel! They are so delicious and amazing and YUM!

So, I set out on a quest to create my own soft pretzels and while it was a success, they aren’t even comparable to the ones I get at the farmer’s market – they are totally different but awesome in their own way. The ones at the farmer’s market are like bread where as these really have the consistency of a soft pretzel.

One reason I love sharing recipes is because I can link to the original site without having to re-type and re-claim the recipe as my own AND the creator of the recipe that did put in all of that work (it’s a lot of work to create a recipe on a blog) gets credit from your visit so HERE IS THE LINK to the recipe I used!

So this recipe made about 6 pretzels (obviously of carying sizes) and I only really screwed up one because I didn’t boil it long enough in the water/baking soda. I would recommend boiling at LEAST 2 minutes or until it increases (almost doubles) in size. I’ll use less baking soda in the water next time too.

I dropped one off at Karl’s house (he wasn’t home so I left it on his counter) and then delivered one to Mom – the look on her face was priceless when she realized they were actually delicious! HA!

I will for sure be making these again! Hopefully my shaping skills improve too!
