Pretzel Rolls

I’ve made this statement before many times on the blog, there is nothing better than the smell of bread baking in the oven. I don’t make homemade bread as much as I should. It’s incredibly easy and most times the final product can be frozen, so there’s really no excuse to not bake it more often. A few weekends ago when Shannon from Bake.Frost.Repeat. was in town, we decided to tackle homemade bread. I’ve made dinner rolls before and I’m a big fan of cheating on a few steps with my bread machine. We wanted to make something fully from scratch, no bread machine help, and shape the bread ourselves. We decided on Pretzel Rolls and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Salty and crunchy on the outside, and fluffy soft on the inside. These were great to munch on by themselves and would be perfect to jazz up sandwiches or burgers, plus they freeze very well.
