I used parchment paper instead of greasing the surface, and the pretzels came up easily.

Loved them, made mine with rosemary and garlic. Hard to roll into pretzel, but good as bread shape too

Tasted okay, but dough too sticky and wet to form. Also stuck to greased surface.

I thought these were good. I made a few with cinnamon sugar and some with salt. I do not think I let them rise long enough after I shaped them though. I had some extra dough so I made pigs in a blanket with hot dogs. They were awesome! I will make them again soon!
