I posted a question on the preztle recipe thread, but thought this was more appropriate place.
I have tried to make pretzels but the problem I have is that when I put the dough into the boiling water, it instantly started to turn into noodle--soggy and messy.
Then when I tried to bake them (thinking "Well, these are the instructions, that must be what it is supposed to do") it was exactly as successful as baking a giant soggy noddle might be--namely UNsuccessful.
Is y'all's dough just REALLY stiff? Air dried slightly so that there is a skin? How do you get it to hold up to the boiling water? Even the quickest dip resulted in the outside misshaping and "noodling".
I love hot pretzels...got the butter and the salt...now I need the bread! Thanks for your help! :-)
