1 pkg. active dry yeast
1 ½ tsp. Sugar
¾ tsp. Salt
1 egg yolk
1 T. water

Add 2 more c. flour and continue kneading for 3 minutes. If dough is sticky, knead in enough of ½ c. flour to form soft dough. Shape into a ball. On floured surface, cut into 16 pieces and roll with hands into approximately 12-inch ropes. Shape as pretzels and put on foil covered cookie sheets. Beat egg yolk and 1 T. water until well blended.
