Pretzels

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set it aside until later.
  2. Put the yeast, water, and honey in a small bowl. Stir together, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes. Set a timer to ring when the 5 minutes are over.
  3. While the mixture sits, mix the flour and salt together in a medium-size mixing bowl.
  4. When the timer rings, check on the yeast mixture. It should be bigger than before and should be a little bubbly. Add this mixture to the flour and salt mixture.
  5. Stir everything together with a spoon, to start, then finish mixing with your hands. Make sure your hands are totally clean. The dough is finished when it's still a little crumbly and flaky.
  6. Put the dough on a large 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. Use your hands to roll it into a skinny snake.
  8. Twist the snake into a medium-size pretzel shape, and put it on the cookie sheet. Do this with all the dough, making 12 pretzels.
  9. Bake your pretzels for 10 minutes. Take them out of the oven, let them cool, then enjoy.
