Soft Pretzels

This is a great recipe for pretzels, but can also be used to make cinnamon sugar twists, bread sticks, crazy bread, or even great dipping bread. Very quick and easy. Kids love it because they can play with the dough and make shapes, etc. Enjoy!


1 Tsp. dry yeast

1 1/2 C. warm water

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. sugar

4 C. flour
Mix all ingredients (either by hand or in bread mixer). Knead by hand until smooth texture. Divide into 8 pieces. Shape into pretzel shape (or kid's initials, twists, bread sticks, the list goes on). Baste with 1 beaten egg. Sprinkle with course salt (opt.) or after baking coat with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (hhhmmmm). Bake 10-12 min. at 450 or until golden brown. (That's right, no time needed for rising, just make and bake; they puff right up in the oven). Time: 20 min. (baking time included)
