Soft Pretzels ~ Kid Friendly

Jana here with a recipe that is great for your child to make with you!  This came from an old (November 2007) Highlights High Five magazine for kids.  There are only a few, easy steps, and both of my children were pleased with the results!  (I really enjoyed them too!)

Soft Pretzels (salty or sweet)

3/4 cup warm water
1 yeast packet
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
sea salt or cinnamon/sugar mix

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with oil.

2. Sprinkle a package of yeast onto 3/4 cup of warm water.  Add a tablespoon of sugar, and stir. Let stand until mixture foams.

3. Put two cups of flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt into a bowl.  Add the yeast mixture and stir.

3. Sprinkle flour on the counter and knead the dough until it's smooth.

4. Roll pieces of dough into ropes and make fun shapes.

5. Beat an egg with a fork. Brush pretzels with the egg. Sprinkle with coarse salt or cinnamon/sugar mix.

6. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. (until light brown)
