Pretzels

Prep time: about 30 minutes

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325º F (165º C).
  2. Put the yeast in a small bowl with the water and honey. Stir a little, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Mix the flour and salt together in a medium-size bowl.
  4. After the 5 minutes is up, check on the yeast mixture. It should be bigger than before and a little bubbly. Add this mixture to the flour and salt mixture.
  5. Stir everything together. Use a spoon to start. Finish with your hands. The dough is ready when it's still a little crumbly and flaky.
  6. Sprinkle flour on a cutting board. Put the dough on the cutting board and knead it like you are playing with clay. Knead it into one big ball.
  7. Break off a piece of dough that's about the size of a big gumball or superball. Use your hands to roll it into a skinny snake.
  8. Twist the snake into a medium-size pretzel shape, and put it on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Do this with all the dough, making 12 pretzels.
  9. Bake your pretzels for 10 minutes. Let them cool and take a bite!
