Mmmm... Pretzels

There will be friends, there will be skiing, there will be beer... there should be pretzels.


The recipe from Local Breads yielded beautiful results - highly recommended.  No mention of  an egg wash in the recipe, but I added one just to pretty them up.  A lump of WW sourdough starter went in too, just because it was there and in need of a home.  I can't wait for another occasion to bake these.  Does Tuesday qualify as an occasion?

Marcus, As I look at these beautiful pretzels, they not only make me hungry, but thirsty as well! :^)

I didn't really think this through very well.  I should have made another batch before I posted this, because now I can't get them out of my head!

This is such a sturdy dough they were actually a lot of fun to make, and really hard to mess-up.  Not much finesse required - always good news for me!

There was a fair amount of dunking and slathering with these and it was all good!
