  • 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 365ºF 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.
