Heart Shaped Pretzels

We wanted to make pretzels the other day and they managed to become Heart shapes along with other shapes and letters. These pretzels would be perfect for a Valentine's day treat or just to say I love you. This recipe is one my daughter did in school so it is a very doable process to get your kids involved. Keep reading to find out how we made Our Heart Shaped Pretzels.

-In a big bowl, mix together, yeast, water, sugar, and salt.
-Stir in flour.
-Knead dough on floured  table until dough is smooth. Add more flour if too sticky.
-Line cookie sheets with foil and spray with oil.
-Shape dough into Hearts or whatever shape you choose.  We did letters too.
-Brush pretzels with egg white and sprinkle with salt
****For Cinnamon Variety,  brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. 
-Bake in oven set at 425 F for 15 minutes or until browned.

As you can see we made some of the pretzels into letter shapes and traditional pretzel shapes.
These are really YUMMY!
