Raspberry Delight

When I was a young man, I taught in a one-room schoolhouse and lived in the bachelor's quarters. At lunchtime, I'd often trade my store-bought cookies for the students' homemade goodies. Of course, nothing tastes as good as homemade, and that inspired me to do more cooking for myself. Pretzels are the surprising "secret ingredient" in this tasty dessert.—Warren Knudtson, Las Vegas, Nevada
