Soft Pretzels...YUM!

These are Andrews favorite! He asks me to make them all the time! He even wanted them for lunch today! I have to agree with him. They are pretty yummy!

This is what kind of cheese we eat them with.

Here is the recipe.
3 1/2 C. flour
2 T. Sugar
1/2 t.salt
1pkg. dry yeast
1 C. water
1 T. margarine
coarse salt
Mix 1 C. flour with sugar, salt, and yeast. Heat water and margarine to 120 degrees F. Gradually add to dry ingredients and beat with electric mixer for 2 min. at medium speed. Add 1/2 C. flour and beat at high speed for 2 Min. Stir in enough additional flour to makea soft dough. Knead dough over to grease all sides. Cover with damp cloth, and allow to rise for 40 min. in a warm, dry place. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 20 in. rope and shape into pretzels. Place on greased baking sheet...or a baking stone (which I use). cover and let rise for 5-10 min while preheating oven to 375 degrees. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with salt(optional). Bake for 14 min. We like eating them when they are warm out of the oven!
