Soft Pretzels

These are great to make with your kids. Mine love playing with the dough and then getting to eat their results.

1 package yeast
1 1/2 C warm water
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
4 C flour
1 egg, beaten
course salt

Measure warm water inot large mixing bowl. Sprinkle on yeast and stir until it looks soft. Add salt, sugar, and flour. Mix and knead dough. Give kids small balls of dough to roll and twist into shapes (snakes, letters, number, etc) Grease cookie sheet. Lay pretzels on cookie sheet. Brush pretzels with beaten egg and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Enjoy.
