  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 envelope yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • pinches of salt or cinnamon-sugar



Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  In a small bowl, stir together warm water, yeast, and sugar.  In a large mixing bowl, mix salt and flour with a large spoon.  After five minutes, stir yeast mix into flour mix.  With well-floured hands, shape dough into 6-inch rods, initials, animals, or traditional twisted pretzel shapes!  Brush them with the beaten egg adn place on a greased cookie sheet.  If desired, sprinkle them with extra salt or cinnamon sugar.  Bake for 12 minutes at 425 degrees.

And remember to break your pretzel into bite size pieces instead of biting straight into it to protect your brackets!
