1 tbsp yeast (one packet)
½ cup warm water
1 tsp honey
1 1/3 coup flour
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 325º.

Put yeast in a small glass bowl with the warm water and honey. Stir a little, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.

Mix the flour and salt together in a medium size bowl, make a small well.

After the 5 minutes is up, check on the yeast mixture. It should be bigger than before and a little bubbly. Add this mixture to the flour and salt mixture.

Stir everything together, Use a spoon to start, finish with hands. The dough is ready when it’s still a little crumbly and flaky.

Put the dough on the cutting board and knead it. Knead into a ball.

Break off a piece of dough that’s about the size of a big gumball. Damp a paper towel and lay on top of dough not being used right now. Use your hands to roll it into a skinny snake.

Twist the snake into a medium size pretzel shape, and put it on a cookie sheet. Do this with all the dough, making 12 pretzels.

Bake pretzels for 10 minutes. When you pull them out of the oven, before they cool, you can add butter and sea salt, or butter and cinnamon sugar, or any seasoning you would like.
