Cooking with kids: Easy homemade pretzels

Filed under: Preschoolers, Activities: Babies, Nutrition: Health, Development/Milestones: Babies

My three-year-old loves to help cook, and especially loves baking. At her old preschool she made pretzels and other goodies, and at her new preschool she helps to make challah every Friday. She particularly enjoys making the pretzels because the dough can be rolled and twisted any number of ways. If you aren't watching the Super Bowl today, you might try this fun cooking project instead.

Pretzels

1 package of yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of sugar
4 cups of flour
1 egg, beaten
sea salt (rock salt prefereable)

Preheat oven to 350º.

Measure warm water into a large bowl. Sprinkle on yeast and stir until soft. Add salt, sugar, and flour. Mix and knead dough with hands. Roll and twist into any desired shapes. Place on greased cookie sheet. Brush with beaten egg. Sprinkle with salt. Bake 12-15 minutes.
