We followed the package instructions.
We mixed the dough.
We turned it out onto a floured surface to knead.
We let it rest and rise.
We cut out strips with a pizza cutter to make our favorite shapes and letters.
Then we topped the pretzel with some pepperoni and shredded monterey jack cheese just before baking. You can use any cheese. The project seemed a bit labor intensive, probably because I'm not in the habit of dough making. Also because it was the first time we've ever made this. But it did turn out well, and they tasted really good!
