Year 3 Make Lenten Pretzels in RS

During their RS lesson with Mrs Coster, Year 3 pupils learnt how to make Pretzels. Did you know that a young monk baked the first pretzel – making a Lenten bread of water, flour and salt, forming the dough into the prayer position and baking it as soft bread. They can be savoury or sweet.


The girls made and shaped the dough into crosses before Mrs Coster boiled them all in hot water for 1 minute. Then they covered them in either salt or sugar before putting them into the oven for 10 minutes. The last step was to  sprinkle icing on top. They were surprisingly delicious!
