Germany Pretzel Recipe

This is an authentic German pretzel recipe that I translated from German.  The only different thing about this pretzel recipe is that the pretzels are dipped in a baking soda bath instead of a lye bath.  They are really quite tasty!

Traditional Apple Strudel

What would an Oktoberfest party be without apple strudel??  This apple strudel recipe is really pretty easy to make as you use puff pastry as the dough instead of making a handmade dough.  You can’t tell the difference!
