The secrets to successful pretzel preparation: Skill, timing, and a whole lotta TLC. Also, practice, practice, and a little more practice. Hey, practice makes pretzels perfect.
It all starts with the dough. At Auntie Anne's, they mix up their dough on-site -- in fact, they go through a lot of pretzel dough on a daily basis. Once they've mixed their dough to a perfect consistency, it's time to cut, hand-roll, and twist. Auntie Anne's pretzel-makers begin with a strip of dough. They stretch the strip and hand-roll it into a long rope formation.
Then they do the twist. Seasoned pretzel-makers can twist a pretzel into the perfect shape with a lasso-like motion. And once their pretzels have assumed the correct shape, they prepare them for baking.
Once they place their pretzels into the oven, you're a few short minutes away from realizing pretzel perfection -- fresh, hot, golden-brown soft pretzels.
