3 Sensational Gluten Free Soft Pretzel Recipes

September 30, 2011

Soft pretzels were always one of my favorite childhood snacks. Soft, chewy pretzels studded with poppy seeds, onions or just plain, dipped in cheesy nacho or spicy mustard sauce -- what's not to love? Living gluten free, those soft breads tend to be the most difficult to bake -- gluten is the essential elastic ingredient in keeping dough soft and pliable, helping bread to rise and become bubbly, creating that thick crunchy crust on French bread. All that said, so many great strides have been made in the past few years, that even such recipes like puff pastry and pate a choux are possible, gluten free! Here are my 3 favorite gluten free soft pretzel recipes, perfect for snacking!
