PretzelsIngredients you will need: 1 tbsp. yeast, ½ c. warm water, 1 tsp. honey, 1-1/3 c. flour, 1 tsp. salt

What you do:

.Preheat the oven to 325° Fahrenheit (165° Celsius).

.Put the yeast in a small bowl with the water and honey. Stir a little, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.

.Mix the flour and salt together in a medium bowl.

.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.

.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.

.Put the dough on the cutting board and knead it like you are playing with clay. Knead it into one big ball.

.Break off a piece of dough that’s about the size of a big gumball or super ball. Use your hands to roll it into a skinny snake.

.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.

.Bake your pretzels for 10 minutes. Let them cool and take a bite!
