whole family loved this one!
it's a very
substantial and sensational recipe!
Please add bread
flour has high protein content makes dough
stronger for handling. House flour might fail.
The pretzels were
just right. I made them for our preschool kids in
the shape of the letter "X" which they
are studying this week. There aren't many snack
that start with "X"!!! Thank you for
These are great
while they're hot but don't try to save them for
the next day.
this recipe is
great!! don't skimp on the butter
Although these were pretzels, I didn't feel like
these were very much like Auntie Anne's.
Love the recipe
and have made several times. Thanks.
I'm so glad I
finally found a recipe for these pretzels. They
are my favorite! I never leave the mall without
buying them for my family. I'm going to try it
right away. Thank you!
I made these
pretzels today and they were a smash hit! Thank
you for a great recipe. I made up one batch and
made some with each topping suggested - they were
wonderful! Easy too!
This recipe was
GREAT! just like Auntie Anne's! Thank you so much
for this recipe! It was a hit!
were delicious! I made them and my parents and my
six brothers and sisters all loved them! I've
tried them with all three variations!
I use this recipe
to make vegetarian pretzel dogs. They are
outstanding - my family gobbles them up.
These pretzels are great. I used them as a snack for my little
brothers!! They are DELICIOUS!!
This recipe was perfect. Added a glaze topping: 1/8 Ė 1/4 cup heavy
whipping cream. Add powdered sugar to thicken approx 3 times the
amount of cream. Best if chilled for 15 minutes. Pour over pretzel.
very close to auntie annes pretzels.. thank you kids loved them.
this recipe is the BEST!!!!!! thanks so much.
tastes well, but there are no similarities
Very good quality! Thanks bunches for the recipe! Have made them
twice. (Not including tonight with my sister and her friends.)
I don't think so. I'm from the UK & after a wonderful visit to your
lovely country my Husband & I fell in love with pretzels. I made
this recipe twice now but they really don't taste like anything we
had out there. YUK!!!!
they are great
was wondering why the dough had to sit for 1 hour when i went to
hanaukas preteztels it only had to sit for 5-10 minutes. just
wondering what the difference was even though i don't celebrate
hanauka I celebrate christmas I was wondering why so long.BUt the
pretzels from your instuctions were so good.... WOW!!!.
These were ok. I have had
better. NOT EVEN CLOSE to auntie annes! I will not be making these
again as the bottoms were really hard. At 550 degrees for 8mins they
were quick to cook but had NO FLAVOR. All the flavor came from the
butter and cinnimon suger. People, dont waste your time with this.
This recipe is the best
I've found yet.
I am so Happy with this
recipe, it is a whole lot cheaper than the Mall one's. Thank you so
i cant believe it this
was so delicious and tasted exactly like aunt annies my family loved
so deilious i could eat
1,000 each day for breakfast lunch and dinner!!
Just like Aunt Annie's
pretzels at the mall - and we are experts ;-) My six year old son
helped me measure ingredients and roll out the pretzels, then my
husband helped us eat them all! He likes the garlic flavor and when
you dip in butter then sprinkle with garlic powder and garlic salt,
they are super good. Tastes a lot like Olive Garden's bread sticks.
Thanks for the great recipe.
they were really really
They were hickle-doodley
awesome but add+ cheese they taste better when cold with cheese!!!
the kids loved them
be careful of oven temp.
550 may be to hot try 475 for 8 minutes. good flavor though.
For maximum flavor, I'd
suggest an overnight rise in the fridge after shaping, then bring
back to room temp before baking. Slower rise = more flavor. Great
These are delicious!!!!
We made the cinnamon and sugar ones and they melted in your mouth!!!
dd rinsed, chopped
jalapenos (from a can or jar) to the dough for the jalapeno version.
ummmm! this recipe is
sure to solve all of your pretzel cravings! Delish!!!!
Fantastic -- better the
the real thing and so easy!!!
the kids loved your
recipe and the one they like best was the cinnamon.
Not too bad. More flavor
in the pretzel if the cook temperature is about 500. Also try
clarified butter not just regular melted butter. Its not difficult
THESE PRETZELS LOOKED SO
GOOD WHEN THEY CAME OUT OF THE OVEN. AND THEN, I TOOK A BITE OUT OF
IT AND I HAD TO SPIT IT OUT. THIS IS DEFF. THE WORST SOFT PRETZEL I
HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE. I DID EVERYTHING CORRECT INTHIS RECIPE AND
I EVEN RE-DID IT THINKING THE FIRST TIME I MESSED UP BUT THE SECOND
TIME I MADE IT, IT WAS STILLTHE SAME BAD TASTING PRETZEL OS THE
FIRST. I'M ONLY TELLING YOU THIS SO THAT YOU DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME
AND FOOD ON THE RECIPE, PLEASE GO TO ANOTHER WEBSITE AND FIND A
DIFFERENT RECIPE IF YOU REALLY WANT SOME GOOD SOFT PRETZELS. THANK
YOU FOR TAKING YOUR TIME TO READ THIS!!
I don't think they're
quite Auntie Anne's but they are still really good and easy to make
for a non-baker like myself. I've made this recipe at least six
times. All of my friends love them. Thanks!
Wow!! These are so easy
and so yummy!! It is awesome... I have been impressed with every
recipe I have tried so far. Thanks!!
Me and my kids just made
theese and they were so good. Just like at the mall!
I made these and they
came out perfect, but I had to put them in for 6 minutes instead of
8.. they are great! way better than aunt anne's.
I tried this recipe with my son and some of my nephews and we loved
Perfect! I used my old
breadmachine to make the dough. Put the first 4 ingredients in the
machine and set the crossant dough mode which took 90 minutes. The
rest is same as the recipe above. Tastes just right. I can make
pretzel and bagle at home now. Thank you.
mm they were delicious
with the parmesan cheese and garlic, although you might need to
alter the recipe. instead of the baking soda and water ontop of the
pretzels to brown them, you should use jus reg. old fashion egg
*Whites*. the baking soda gives it this weird taste that isn't quite
I personally thoght they
were gross. No way near the real things!
I've made this recipe for
years it is the best!! Tried other recipes and nothing compares to
this one. Thanks for putting it out there its a big hit with
everyone I make them for.
These preztels are good,
my kids loved them. However, they do not compare to Aunt Anne's at
very buttery i love the
My whole family LOVES
this recipe. It's easy and AWESOME!
I thought they were the
best just the best
OK I stasted these then
Auntie Anne's. They were pretty good. Not really like Auntie Anne's
because my friend works there. They put something in there
different. But there were reall good.
These were really good.I
finally found a recipe for pretzal's. They kinda taste like Auntie
had a wonderful time
making these with my girlfriend. she was impressed i could make
something other than cold cereal.
made these pretzels
earlier..they didn't even taste close to Auntie Annes
These pretzels were
awesome! What are you talking about they dont tase like Aunti
Annie's? Mine tased so good, this is the best recipe I have found
yet! 500 degrees for 8 minutes is better, and lay off a bit on the
baking soda. Use more like 3/4 of a tblsp. My whole family loved
wow...did i not just eat
a pretzel from auntie anne's? this recipe is amazing!
i still love auntie
anne's pretzels best, nothing will bet them, sorry.
I have made these many
times and they always turn out wonderful. I agree the temperture is
too high but just lower it. Everyone who tastes them loves them
especially when they are hot. Thank you for sharing this one.
i was looking for a
pretzel recipe for my school age classroon to make. it was so simple
to make they loved the results and ask me often when we are going to
make pretzels agian. they are always coming up with ideas for new
toppings. thank you for such a great recipe
they are very good and delishis.
These were not very good
pretzels and they did not taste like auntie annes. I was very
Incredible!!! You must
I work for auntie annes
and this is a pretty good copycat recipe. you are missing a couple
of things though
Second batch is in the
oven; BIG HIT with two incredibly picky eaters!! Don't know what
the people who did not like the recipe did; maybe old yeast or
wrong temperature water?? Maybe they overworked the dough? The
whole family here thought these were fantastic and they DID taste
an awful lot like Auntie Annes!!
they werent that
these pretzels were
really good and everyone loves them and i make all the time
however each time they come out different however they are awesome
and delicious ....
This is an awesome
recipe. After trying a few of the recipes I had to buy the book!!!
My kids liked them but
i didn't think they were very good and they didn't taste anything
like auntie annes
Eating as we speak.
BEST prezels I have ever tasted!!! By mistake I doubled the
salt,yeast and sugar..was planning double badge..and forgot. We
made pretzel sticks..my 4 year old and I MMMmmmmmm. Oh..we used
all purpose flour... MMMMmmmmmmm
Disappointed! I don't
know what went wrong but they turned out to be hard pretzels, not
soft. I baked them on the top rack and only kept them in the oven
for 7 mins as they were getting quite brown. They didn't resemble
Auntie Anne's at all!!!
these pretzels are
amazing!! just like auntie anne's!! i make them all the time and
it saves me money from not having to make a trip to the mall when
i crave auntie anne's pretzels. for all those who say this recipe
is terrible, doesn't taste anything like it, etc. you have to make
it right for it to taste right!
Oh GOD!!! Absolutley
Wonderful!!! Easy to make and better than Annie's Aunt
This is a great recipe!
Pay no attention to the few negative remarks(I am guessing that
they didn't use bread flour).
As a former auntie
anne's manager i can say..nope try again..and to the person who
said they were not good the next day..duh! would you want
yesterdays pretzel if you went to auntie anne's?
I looked all over for a
Aunt Anne's copycat, and these are good EXCEPT do not brush the
pretzels with baking soda before baking, it leaves an awful taste
on them! Try an egg white wash instead!! I brushed mine with
melted butter when they got out of the oven and then sprinkled one
with sour cream & onion powder, and the other I sprinkled with
ranch powder. The 'Ranch' pretzel was out of this world -
fantastic!! You can find these powdered seasoning's in the popcorn
seasoning isle at any grocery store! I still had dough left so
made a copycat Pretzel Dog using a Nathan's hot dog. Unbeleivably
delicious! Now these tasted EXACTLY like an Aunt Anne's pretzel
dog! I repeat...do NOT brush the dough with baking soda! Use an
egg white wash instead!
ewww gross, i hate it.
its so tough to chew and tasted soo plain. yuck!never going to try
it EVER AGAIN!!!
Worked perfectly! My
six year old daughter and I made these with very litle effort.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! We will be making
They came out okay but
we needed to turn the temperature down a little because they burnt
quickly on the bottom. Next time we might try 450 degrees.
I have been making this
recipe for years and have not found one better so far. If you
canít make good pretzels with this recipe you canít bake
These pretzels are the
best for anyone who doesn't think their just as good as Auntie
Anne's you just didn't prepare them correctly, try it again the
second time will be the charm
omg i tried the
pretzels and they were AWSOME!!!! they didnt taste like auntie
annes but they were AWSOME my brothers and i LOVED THEM
WOW!!!! I am eating one
as I type this, they taste almost like the ones at the mall[and I
don't even have pretzel salt!]. even the back of the pretzels look
this was the best
recipe ever my daughter and i enjoyed making them and the family
enjoyed them even more thanks this is the best website ever i am
lucky i found it thanks soooooo much!!!!
use 1 tsb of barley
malt 1 tsb of apple butter in dough or 1/2 tsb of apple sauce 1/2
tsb of butter in dough
these pretzels were
awesome all my friends thought i was a proffesional baker
omg this was 10x better
the aunties annes even tho auntie annes is beter there still
OMG....those r so
I just tried this
recipe in my classroom and the students loved it. It was really
fun that they could make their own shapes and chose either
regular, cheese or cinnamin and sugar.
dont understand the
'strong' dislikes of the recipe. Clearly there are more of us who
loved the recipe! We've made it four or five times and my kids,
all 8 of them, loved them! GREAT RECIPE!
This helped me so much
on my how to project. Thank you so mcuh! YUMMMMM!
These are DELICIOUS! I
have made several other recipes and this is the best by far. I
added more sugar than the recipe called for ( 2 Tbl ) and added 1
tsp oil to the dough. I don't understand the poor reviews... they
are great and super easy.
These people on here
who say this recipe wasn't very good obviously didn't follow the
recipe right. I made these and they were awesome! Thank you Robbie
for such a wonderful website.
