  • I rolled mine about 18" long and liked the shape better. A real winner. We loved them. With sausages, sauerkraut, and spicy brown mustard, it feels like a real Oktoberfest! - 4/7/12

  • Have been looking for ways to up my fiber and calcium so made this with whole wheat flour and sesame seeds. yum - but be careful with the salt. my kosher salt looked beautiful but really made the taste too salty and I ended up scraping it off. - 2/1/11

  • These pretzels were pretty good. They definitely need a topping of some sort, though. - 5/17/10

  • Good Recipe! I used Sea Salt instead of Kosher. The hard part was rolling the dough long enough, my first batch came out fat (too short). The pretzel it self tasted a little bland next time I will try it with cinnimon and sugar and use whole Wheat flour. - 1/20/10

  • These were very good. We ate them with mustard. I used whole wheat flour, so they were slightly dense. I will make these again! - 4/4/09
