    I have made this dough several times for pretzels, pizza and sticky buns. I love the tenderness, ease and versatility of this recipe. I highly recommend it and kids love it too.

    I made these pretzels tonight and they are great! This dough was very simple. I made the dough last night and stuck it in my fridge to rise. I should have used parchment because I painted them with butter which caused them to stick to my baking sheet. I made some cinnamon sugar, kosher salt and fresh parmesan. Perfectly crisp on the outside and soft in the middle. Delish!
