Pleasantly Pleasing Unpretentious Pretzels

These are DELICIOUS!!!!!!

First, in a small bowl pour 1/2 cup warm water, 1 teaspoon sugar and mix together. Then add in
 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast. Let rest for 10 min.
Now, in a bigger bowl add 1 cup warm water,1 tablespoon sugar  and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix in the yeast mixture with this. The recipe calls for 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour but I only used about 3 cups when mixing together in the bowl.
Make sure surface is clean and dry and sprinkle with flour.  Pour dough onto surface and knead for  about 5 minutes until dough is firm and elastic. Let rest for 10 minutes.
Make sure you have an adorable 2-year-old that wants to eat raw dough
sitting next to you and then divide dough into 12 equal parts.
Roll dough out as if you were making a snake....about 10 inches long. Then twist into a pretzel shape. Place on greased baking sheet. Shout out to LO for remembering this recipe. Isn't she just so cute!

 Combine 1 egg with 1 tablespoon water; stir briskly. Brush tops of pretzels and sprinkle with coarse salt and sesame seeds. Bake for about 15 minutes at 425 degrees and eat while warm. They are the BEST!!!! We are giving them away to neighbors for Christmas gifts (that is, if we don't eat them all first)!
