Baked Pretzels

1/2 package or 1/4 teaspoon dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
Coarse salt
3/4 cup warm water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg with 1 teaspoon water

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add salt. Blend in flour with fork on floured
board. Knead dough until smooth. Pull off pieces of dough about size of
golf balls. Roll into 14 inch ropes and twist into pretzel shapes (
alphabet shapes are fun for young children). Brush with beaten egg and
water; sprinkle with salt. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 350 degrees for
15-18 minutes.
