soft pretzels

who doesn't love pretzels while watching sports, movies or anytime really...these are so easy!

2 packages dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tsp. salt
4 cups flour

soda solution:
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 tsp. soda

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add salt and flour to make a soft dough. Knead until smooth. Cover and let rises 15 minutes. Divide into 8 poritions (16 for smaller pretzels). Roll each pience into narrow ropes and shape as pretzel. Dip in soda solution. Sprinkle with kosher salt. If desired, brush with butter as they come from the oven. Enjoy!
