Friday's Twistin' Fun

Okay, the day opened with bathing these cute bums:Love it! I hope Claire doesn't mind this PG pic of Linkdoodle.

Okay--We made homemade pretzels with a super easy and kid friendly recipe:

1 packet of yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
Here's how to make pretzels:

Mix the water and yeast together in a bowl until the yeast is completely dissolved. Add salt, sugar, and flour. Mix and knead until the dough is smooth. Roll and shape the dough into any shape you desire. Place pretzels on a greased cookie sheet and brush them with the beaten egg. Sprinkle lightly with salt ( I used cinnamon and butter and they were yummy!). Bake in a 425 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
They had a blast mixing and then I ended up having to shape the pretzels for them. Check it out! Totally would recommend this project with warning: the dough about doubles in shape and ends up being too big for their little mouths--caution: make small pretzels!
