1. Homemade Auntie Anne's Pretzels

Ah, the classic. Some Auntie Anne's copycats yield small, lumpy pretzels: knockoffs that barely resemble the original. Not this recipe. Pair these perfect treats with dijon mustard for an easy, savory afternoon snack or go all out and make your own cheese sauce.

Pretzel bread with its own unique twists (whether or not you actually twist the dough is up to you).
