Breadmaking With a Twist!

Makes 12 servings

1 package yeast (2¼ teaspoons)
½ cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees)
1 teaspoon honey
1 1/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water, add honey and let set for a few minutes.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, measure flour and salt.
  4. Add yeast mixture to flour mixture and stir until ingredients are combined. Dough will be crumbly and flaky.
  5. Knead dough on counter top or dough board until it forms a smooth ball. Add a little flour if dough is sticky.
  6. Divide dough into 12 pieces about the size of a walnut. Roll each ball into a snake and then make a pretzel, letter or fun shape.
  7. Place pretzels on a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Did You Know?        
  • Eat vegetables, fruits, and whole grains with meals or as snacks. Let your child see that you like to munch on raw vegetables. 
  • Reward with attention, not food. Choose not to offer sweets as rewards.
  • Stop being a short-order-cook by making different dishes to please children. It’s easier to plan a meal when everyone eats the same foods.
