      2 c  Milk
    1/2 c  Butter or margarine
      2 pk Yeast; active, dry
      2 t  Salt
    1/2 c  Sugar

  salt, sugar, and 1 cup flour.  Slowly beat into warm milk. Beat for 2
  minutes. Add eggs and 1 cup of flour. Beat for an additional 2
  minutes. Add enough flour to form a soft dough.  Knead until smooth
  and elastic, about 5 minutes.  Place dough in a greased bowl. Let
  rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Punch dough
  down and let rise again until doubled. (1 hour more).  Divide dough
  in half. Shape pretzel as follows: Roll dough into a rope about 30
  inches long and 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Cross the ends leaving a
  large loop in the center. Flip loop back onto crossed ends to form a
  pretzel. Repeat with remaining dough. Place pretzels on greased
  baking sheets.  Let rise 15 minutes more.
   Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  Cool on wire racks.  Mix confectioners' sugar, water and vanilla to
  form a thin icing. Spread icing on pretzels and sprinkle with chopped
  almonds. Makes 2 large pretzels.
