I like the idea of shaping cookies into pretzel form...even though it's not as easy to shape as soft pretzel I made previously but it's not too difficult to deal with !
The original recipe is from creampuffsinvenice site but I adjusted the recipe a bit by reducing the sugar and adding more nut into the dough. And I'm not sure if because of more nut in the dough that makes rolling and shaping cookies more difficult than it should be... Anyway, if you couldn't be bothered ,just drop it on a baking sheet like you would do for a plain cookie ..the taste won't change, I'm sure!!
