You know those soft pretzels you can buy at the fair or mall pretzels shops? Yes, that is what I was craving. I've made pretzels before using different recipes but they have turned out all malformed and with a rubbery texture. So I went back to the internet searching and came across this gem that Christa Rose posted on allrecipes.com http://allrecipes.com/recipe/buttery-soft-pretzels/. I followed her recipe to a tee and they came out beautifully! Fresh out of the oven, we ate them with a cheesy cream of broccoli soup. WOW! These will be made again. Maybe next time I'll serve them with a gooey, cheddar cheese dipping sauce.
