l 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon sugar 2 tablespoons margarine 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mild Cheddar cheese 2/3 cup milk 1 egg, beaten l 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; cut in margarine with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cheese and milk, stirring until dry ingredients are just moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead about 12 times. Divide dough in half and roll each half into a 12x8-inch rectangle. Cut dough lengthwise into eight 1-inch strips. Twist each into a pretzel shape; brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse salt. Place on lightly greased baking sheets and bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool pretzels for a few minutes on wire racks; serve pretzels warm. Makes about 16 soft pretzels.
