“A big dough fan as I am, I couldn’t not make pretzels. They are one of my favorites and they are so great for a snack or on the go. To be honest I thought it would be more challenging to make them, but it was quite simple and I had so much fun rolling them into shape. For sure, one of my favorite day in the kitchen.”
