Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease 2 large baking sheets. In large bowl, sprinkle yeast over warm water; stir. Add sugar, salt and enough flour (3 1/2 cup) to form a soft dough. Turn onto floured board. Knead 5-7 minutes, adding 1/2 cup more flour if necessary. Cut dough in half then cut each half into 6 equal pieces. Roll dough with hands to form a 15 inch long rope. Place on baking sheet. Cross left side of rope over to middle of rope, creating a loop. Fold right side of rope up and over the first loop to form a pretzel shape. Place pretzels 3 inches apart on baking sheets. Enlarge holes in pretzels with thumb and index fingers. This will prevent them from closing during baking. Mix together egg and water; brush on pretzels. Sprinkle with salt. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Pretzels taste best when eaten warm.
