1 cup water
2 pkgs yeast
2 teaspoon honey
2 1/2 cups milk
1 stick butter
1/2 cup honey
4 teaspoon salt
8 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in one cup of warm water + 2 tsp of honey.
Melt butter in a saucepan, add milk, honey and stir.
Add yeast mixture to warm melted butter mixture and stir to blend.
In a bowl blend flour and salt and slowly mix into warm butter mixture until a dough forms.
Kneed dough and then set aside to rise for about an hour.
Punch down dough and take about a baseball size portion and roll it out so it's long and thin and form it into a pretzel shape.
Brush each pretzel with an egg wash and then sprinkle with course salt.
