Cindy's Pretzel Recipe

1 envelope of dry yeast (or 3t)
3/4 t salt
4 cups flour
coarse salt
1 1/2 C lukewarm water
1 1/2 t sugar
1 egg, beaten

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add sugar and salt. Mix in flour and knead until the dough is soft and smooth. Do not let dough rise. Divide immediately and roll into ropes. Form the ropes into letters, or pretzel shapes. Place on a cookie sheet covered with foil and dusted with flour. Brush each pretzel with beaten egg mixed with a little water. Sprinkle with coarse salt and bake in a 400 degree oven until golden brown. Note: Cindy just used regular table salt. I used Kosher salt to top the pretzels.
