"original printed recipe calls for 2T Butter"
"I will try this with 2 Tablespoons of butter. Please correct the recipe to reflect the appropriate amount of butter."
"I don't know what this is, but it is not a pretzel!! Something very wrong with this recipe."
"I have the original recipe from the magazine, and there is definitely a typo in the posted recipe. It is only 2 Tbsp butter, not 2 cups. Made using the correct measurements, these pretzels are absolutely delicious. My kids and all guests I have served them to inhale them. :)"
"This was simply awful! Somebody somewhere screwed up something. Previous rater said they would use half the butter - yeah! These things ended up sitting in 1/4" of bubbling butter and taste like a buttery salty mess. If you can't trust a recipe, why bother. Avoid this one like the plague."
