About this recipe: These mini pretzels are pretty and delicious. If you find shaping the pretzels too fiddly, feel free to roll out the dough and cut out shapes with a cookie/pastry cutter.

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • 1 pinch baking powder

  • 100g icing sugar;
  • 2 tablespoons rum or punch

Disappointed that after taking time to make the pretzel shape, mine spread so much in baking, you could hardly tell. But nice taste. - 25 Mar 2011
