    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.

    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
