Soft Pretzels

1 package yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
Coarse salt

Dissolve yeast in water, add salt and sugar. Blend in all the flour and
knead until smooth. When smooth, cut dough into small pieces and roll into
ropes. Twist ropes into conventional pretzel shapes and place on a paper-
lined cookie sheet. Brush pretzels with beaten egg, sprinkle with coarse
salt. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 12-15 minutes, or until brown. These
do not keep long.
