Soft Personal Pretzels

I've been trying to think of some different, fun things to do with Tucker during the day that doesn't consist of tv watching, reading books, all that regular stuff.  So we did some baking.  One of his favorite things about going to Sam's Club each week is getting to share a pretzel with me.  He points to the snack bar as soon as we walk in the door and says "etzel" every time.  The recipe I used for these pretzels was from Jocelyn at cooking club.  They turned out great!

1 TB yeast
1 ½ c warm water
2 tsp salt
¼ c honey
1 TB sugar
4-41/2 c flour

Heat the oven to 425. Line 2 baking sheets with tinfoil.

In a large electric mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Add the salt, honey, and sugar and stir well. Blend in the flour at low speed, then medium. Knead about 5 minutes.

Divide dough into 16 equal parts, make shapes, and put on tinfoil.

Bake for 13-15 minutes.

Mix 1 TB cinnamon with 4 TB sugar (I just used cinnamon sugar), melt some butter.

When pretzels are done, remove from oven and apply butter and cinnamon/sugar mixture.
