Total Calories: 28


1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon shortening
6 tablespoons cold water
shortening for frying
coarse salt


Combine flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in Crisco with a pastry blender or 2 knives. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing until dry ingredients are moistened and dough can be gathered into a ball. Knead gently a few times.

Pinch off pieces of dough and shape into 1-inch balls. Roll each ball between hands to form a 10-inch rope. Form each rope into a pretzel shape. Set on waxed paper.

Heat Crisco to 365°F in a deep saucepan or deep fryer. Fry 3 pretzels at a time in hot Crisco for 3 minutes or until golden brown.

Drain on paper towels sprinkle with coarse salt.
