From the Got Braces? The Braces Cookbook by Pamela Waterman and Brenda Waterman

Twisty Soft Pretzels

Just like the ones you get at mall kiosks, these are big and soft. Get them while they're hot!

3/4 cup warm water

1/2 envelope yeast

1 teaspoon sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten

Pinches of salt or cinnamon-sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bake for 12 minutes.

In a small bowl, stir together warm water, yeast and sugar. In a large bowl, mix salt and flour with a large spoon. After 5 minutes, stir yeast mix info flour mix.

With well-floured hands, shape dough into 6-inch rods, initials, animals or traditional twisted pretzel shapes. Brush them with the beaten egg and place on a greased cookie sheet. If desired, sprinkle them with extra salt or cinnamon-sugar. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes.
