Lovin' From The Oven-Easy Homemade Pretzels

This is a super easy recipe for soft pretzels that I've made many times with my kids. They love making different shapes and even letters. Today, we made some Valentine's Day shaped pretzels! Hearts, X's, and O's, and even some "tied knots"! They turned out great and were tasty too!

{You will need}
1 packet of yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
Course salt to sprinkle on top (if desired) 

{Here's how to make pretzels}
Mix the water and yeast together in a bowl until the yeast is completely dissolved. Add salt, sugar, and flour. Mix and knead until the dough is smooth. Roll and shape the dough into any shape you desire. 

Place pretzels on a greased cookie sheet and brush them with the beaten egg. Sprinkle lightly with  course salt.

Bake in a 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
