While following the directions in the kit was easy, making these pretzels was a bit time consuming. Obviously, it was all worth it in the end. You do need to have quite a bit of counter space to make the traditional size Auntie Anne pretzels, so if you live in an apartment with limited kitchen space (Welcome to city living!), you're going to have to make the pretzels a bit smaller. I was able to make about 10 to 12 medium-sized pretzels.
Now, feast your eyes on these!
|After you form the pretzels, you have to dip them in a mixture of baking soda and water,|
and dry them on a towel before you bake them.
|See them glistening?|
That's the melted butter glaze.
|Slightly crisp on the outside,|
soft & chewy on the inside.
I'm not sure where my Mom picked up this baking kit, but I did some research and you can find them at any one of these stores.
Now, who's planning on going out immediately and picking up a package?
