This was half success and half failure. The pretzels stuck so hard to the parchment paper and I had to slice the bottom to remove the paper. Next time I will grease the pan to see if that helps. Also I had trouble getting a 24 inch rope and the pretzels were small. The taste was good and hence will be trying it again sometime soon.
This is a fantastic recipe! I found this recipe through another blog and modified it for my son who has many allergies. No butter, but added raisins and cinnamon and drizzled some icing made of powdered sugar and water. Thanks so much for this! I added my modified recipe to my son's allergy blog:
As I have mentioned in the last line - they came out slightly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside --DK
Hi Hema, did you brush the butter on top before putting them in the oven? The butter gives it that beautiful color. The hardness could be cos of overbaking..The oven model varies from one to another and hence temp setting of one will give a different result compared to another. So next time you are baking (until u know what temp works for your model) always check your goods halfway of baking. Suppose if it says bake something at 350F for 15-20min, start chking when its like 8 min mark ....You probably might find that yours gets done faster than the prescribed time...Hope this helps --DK
