   Dissolve yeast in warm water.  Add salt and sugar to
   yeast mixture.  Blend in flour and knead dough until
   smooth, about 7 to 8 minutes.  Cover and let dough
   rise until double in bulk.  Punch down.  Cut dough
   into small pieces and roll into ropes.  Twist ropes
   into pretzel shapes and place on greased cookie sheet.
   Using a pastry brush, bursh pretzels with egg and
   sprinkle with coarse salt.  Allow pretzels to rise
   until almost double in bulk.  Bake at 425 degrees F.
   for 10 to 15 minutes or until browned.  Best if eaten
   immediately.  If not, store in airtight container.
   Makes 12 6-inch pretzels.
