Divide dough in half. Wrap each half in waxed paper; place in freezer for 2 hours or refrigerator overnight.
Work with one half at a time, keeping other half of dough in freezer to keep cool.
Divide each half into 18 pieces.
With floured hands, roll dough on floured waxed paper into a rope about 9 or 10 inches long. (Dough will be soft to work with, so flour hands and surface often.)
To shape, bring ends together overlapping slightly to form a loop; twist ends twice, then seal to center of opposite side forming pretzel shape. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake in 350 oven for 10-14 minutes or until lightly browned on bottom (tops will be pale).
Repeat with remaining dough.
