    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    3 1/2 cups flour
    1 package RapidRise yeast
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon oil
    1 cup hot water -- 125-130

    In a large plastic bag, combine: 2 c. flour, 1 pkg. yeast, 1 tsp. sugar, 1 tsp. salt. Close bag and mix well.

    Add to the bag: 1 Tbsp. oil, 1 c. hot water. Close bag and work until ingredients are well blended. Gradually add enough flour to make a soft dough that pulls away from the sides of the bag (approx. 1 c.). Let dough rest 5 minutes.

    Turn onto lightly floured surface. Divide in half - each child receives one half. Knead the dough for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Cover with the plastic bag and let it rest 10-15 minutes.

    Divide each ball into 2 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 16" rope. Form into pretzel shape and place on a a greased baking sheet. Let rest 10 minutes.

    Brush lightly with beaten egg white or water. Sprinkle with coarse salt (optional). Bake in a 400F oven for 12-15 minutes.
