Philly Pretzels

It was our turn to bring snacks for my 8 year old's Pony League game yesterday. Since the Philadelphia Phillies is the 2008 World Series Champions, my husband, D, thought these soft pretzels will be great to pass out. He woke up extra early (6AM) to bake them and even printed out this note for the kids in the team:

Philadelphia Phillies
2008 World Series Champions

If you were to watch The Phillies at a home game, you can bet that you would be munching on some fresh-made Philadelphia soft pretzels. So close your eyes, take a bite and let your imagination take you there.

D was raised in Philadelphia and has not been back for 20 years. A Philly pretzel is one of the 3 things he misses from Philly. Cheesesteaks and Italian Ice are the other two.

We were about to leave for the game when he got a call from the team coach that all games for the day are cancelled due to poor air quality (because of the brush fires all over SoCal). D was a little disappointed but told him we can bake them again for the team party in two weeks.
We got to enjoy lots of pretzels yesterday. And I bet while munching these fresh-made Philadelphia soft pretzels, D felt he was back in Philly, even for just a little while.

Hi Caroline, sorry I haven't been around in a while due to illness but you certainly have me drooling over your wonderful creations. WOW Philly pretzel looks wonderful but sorry to hear the game was called off that sucks!

I'm a Philly girl who's moved away and seriously misses pretzels too! These look much like the original- I'll be trying them soon!

Thanks, Rosie! As promised, we made these again for the team party.

Susan, thanks for dropping by. My husband & I always talk (and daydreaming) about living in a farm. Your farm looks beautiful.

Thanks, Jo

Thanks, Natalie! Let me know how they turn out. Go Phillies!
