Pretzels

Pretzels

2 (16 oz) loaves frozen bread dough
1 egg white, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon water
Coarse salt

Separate thawed bread into 24 – 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll each ball into a rope 14 1/2 inch long. Have children plan and design pretzel shapes (letters or numerals). Place pretzels one inch apart on greased cookie sheet. Let stand for 20 minutes and brush with combined egg white and water. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Place a shallow pan containing 1 inch of boiling water on bottom rack of oven. Bake pretzels at 350ºF degrees on rack above water for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
