Step 1: Sprinkle yeast and 1 teaspoon of sugar over warm water. Stir to dissolve. Let stand until bubbly, about 10 - 15 minutes.
Step 2: Heat milk, sugar, salt and butter just until butter melts. Cool to lukewarm.
Step 3: Stir in yeast, eggs and 2 cups of flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead until elastic.
Step 4: Press into lightly greased large bowl; turn dough over. Cover; let rise in a warm place, until double in volume.
Step 5: Punch dough down; divide in thirds. Roll each to 30 x 4-inches.
Step 6: Spread each with 1/3 of the filling; roll up, pinching edges; twist each into pretzel shape. Place on cookie sheets.
