Pardon my lack of baking savvy but what makes these (or any other rolls) pretzel rolls?

Boiling them in the backing soda / water solution.

Thank you for the easy to follow directions and the pic, powerplant. These look wonderful, and easy enough that even I might be able to make them. I'm certainly going to give 'er a try!

Since I said I was going to attempt to make these this afternoon, I thought I should share my results. LOL. They are VERY good! Yeasty, and dense enough to hold up to a juicy burger. Mine, however, did not come out as pretty as powerplant's did.

I forgot the melted butter! I printed out the recipe, and as I prepped everything I melted the butter, and had it ready. I had even read the later post where there was a question about when to add the butter, and it was answered. I forgot to add that into my printed copy, and the dough was already proofing when I realized my error. Maybe that's why they were less than pretty. They sure are good though, and by golly, I'll try again. I'm not much of a baker, but I'm not giving up.

They are delicious, and thank you again for sharing, powerplant.

The single one was the one I set aside to use for my burger this afternoon, because it was the prettiest. The rest will definitely be used, probably warmed with butter for breakfasts.

I think I didn't roll them into balls well enough, and cut the decorative slashes a little too deep.

Those look great Cheryl. Did you mix the dough in a food processor?

Good for you! They look good to me. You can work on "pretty" for the next batch.

Thank you so much, Taxy, Andy, and James!

Taxy...no, I didn't use a FP. I just mixed it by hand, and it was very easy. In fact, I'm probably one of the only folks on this board that doesn't even own a FP. I just haven't seen much of a use for one.....yet.

Andy...you are so right. Edible comes first, and 'pretty' can come later.

You all have built up my confidence. I think I'll try French bread soon! Always wanted to make a loaf of French bread.

You have inspired this fellow bread making virgin Cheryl.
I might give these a shot myself just for kicks. I knew you were a kindred spirit when you forgot the butter.
