37~ Homemade Soft pretzels* EASY RECIPE!!

We made sticks and small inch size nuggets-the kids report that they liked the nuggets better because they are softer...and of course, fun to eat!

They are definitely pretzel like, if you can overloook the non brown color- however these were a big hit dipped in mustard, as well as the kid concoction of melted cream cheese and butter! They did have the correct consistency (the pretzels-heh heh) and could be treated as the store bought type.

I absolutly plan on making these again, but may need to triple the recipe to have enough to freeze! The gobblers in our house ate them all.......

Soft Pretzels

1 package of yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon salt
1tablespoon sugar
4-5 cups flour
Prezel salt (optional)

In a large bowl, combine water and yeast. Add sugar and salt, add flour until you have a stiff, plyable dough. Place on floured surface and put your kids to work- knead for 5-8 minutes. Shape as you like, just not too thick or it will burn and be raw in the middle! Brush with a beaten egg and sprinkle with salt-if desired.
Bake at 425 degrees for 5 minutes, or until golden brown. (ours took 10 minutes!)
