3 Tablespoons honey
3 cups lukewarm water
2 pkgs active dry yeast (4 1/2 tsps)
2 tsp salt
8 cups flour
Course sea salt
2 eggs beaten
Add the honey to the water; Sprinkle in the yeast and stir until dissolved. Add the 2 tsp salt. Blend in the flour, and knead the dough until smooth.
Cut dough into pieces. Roll them into ropes and make pretzel shapes. (arms crossed in prayer like people used to do many, many years ago) Place pretzels on lightly greased cookie sheets and brush them with beaten egg and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
