Physical Challenge:
  • 1 egg
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely ground salt
  • ¾ teaspoon regular salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sugar
  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 1 package active dry yeast
Make Dough
  • Stir the sugar and regular salt in the water. Then gently mix in the yeast. Allow the mixture to sit for five minutes until the yeast begins to foam.
  • Slowly stir in the flour a little at a time until a dough forms. Knead the dough until it is elastic (about two minutes).
Form Dough Into Sea Star

Break off a piece of the dough and roll it into a long rope. Cut the rope into 2-3” long pieces. Put five pieces together to make a sea-star shape. Place the pretzels on a cookie sheet.

Brush Pretzels With Egg

Lightly beat the egg in a bowl. Brush the beaten egg over the pretzels using a pastry brush. Sprinkle each pretzel with coarsely ground salt.

Bake Pretzels

Bake pretzels at 400° F for 25 minutes.
