Happy New Year Everyone! This is another German tradition to start off the new year. It is a sweet dough in the shape of pretzel to be accompanied by a nice coffee/tea or a glass of your favourite bubbly! That would depend on how much you celebrated bringing in the new year. This is really easy to make and only takes a few minutes plus rising time. It is fun for any time of the year. Yes I could have used a larger baking sheet to give the pretzel more room. I was using my toaster oven for baking instead of the wall oven.
