These make up fast, and are a great snack! Try dipping them in chipotle mayo, or honey mustard.

Preheat the oven to 435 degrees F. and spray a baking sheet with non stick spray

Mix and dissolve the yeast, sugar, and salt in the warm water. ( I let stand for a few minutes)

Stir in the flour, until a ball forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth.

Divide the one big ball, into six smaller balls. Roll between floured palms till you get a rope, or snake, then shape into a pretzel form, and place on baking sheet.
