The bagel recipes I saw in a magazine inspired me to try creating my own. I've been making them like crazy ever since! My whole wheat version dotted with cranberries is a favorite.—Tami Kuehl, Loup City, Nebraska

  1. In bread machine pan, place the first nine ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting. Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1-2 tablespoons water or flour if needed. Just before the final kneading (your machine may audibly signal this), add cranberries.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide and shape into 12 balls. Push thumb through center of each, stretching and shaping to form an even ring with a 1-1/2-in. hole. Place on a floured surface. Cover with kitchen towels; let rest 10 minutes. Flatten bagels slightly.
  3. Fill a Dutch oven two-thirds full with water; bring to a boil. Drop bagels, two at a time, into boiling water. Cook 45 seconds; turn and cook 45 seconds longer. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain well on paper towels.
  4. Place bagels 2 in. apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Whisk egg white and water; brush over bagels. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 1 dozen.

"I used cinnamon instead of mace but otherwise followed as written. My family loved these nice flavor and chewing texture bagels for breakfast. Thanks for sharing."
