“E”asy Cheezy Pretzels

When my sister was in the early grades of elementary school, her class received the recipe for : “E”asy Cheezy Pretzels”. One might ask why the “E” is quoted, that’s because “E” was the letter they were learning at the time.

In any case, the recipe for “E”asy Cheezy Pretzels was often consulted during the long, sweltering summer days that she and I were indoors hiding from the fearsome Texas sun.

For you, the Internet, I would like to share the recipe, in the extended entry
