I tried to make pretzels before and they didn’t turn out too well.  I thought I’d try again with this recipe

Perhaps the first try was a good practice because this second time, the pretzels turned out so much better.  They’re very pretty…I made them with three different toppings — Parmesan cheese, poppy seed, and sesame seeds.

They’re soft and delicious.  They are best out of the oven, but not bad if you have to heat them up.

Here are photos of my step-by-step process:
