Cinnamon Bagels with Crunchy Topping
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. + cooling
I've made prettier bagels, but we enjoyed these. I mixed up some honey-butter-cream cheese, and I decided that just butter would have been good too; the honey was a little too sweet.

I work with yeast a lot. However, I've never attempted bagels. This recipe was so easy and tastes great. I did have a mishap with the topping- I coated the whole bagel in it- which burned the bottoms just a tad. I wonder what they would taste like without the topping. I will try that next time. Great recipe regardless.
First time ever making bagels. These turned out really well and is an easy recipe to follow. I read after that if you boil 2 minutes you get a chewier bagel. I did it at 45 seconds per the recipe- this does yield some chew with a soft interior. Next time will boil a bit longer to see if I might like it even more. The brown sugar in the recipe is divided- didn't realize it until it was too late. Bagels still delish with all the brown sugar in the dough and none in the water (oops).
The bagels turned out pretty good for my first time . The only reason I say, "pretty good", is because they did not turn out very pretty. That was DUE to it being my first time. I did have to add extra flour and note to self, " do not flatten the dough to much when shaping. Great taste.
This was my first time attempting bagels (and I don't even bake with yeast very often) and they were really sticky and didn't really rise for me or get "golden brown" when I baked them. They weren't very pretty, but the taste was fantastic. I did add more flour than what the recipe called for due to how sticky it was. I was afraid to add too much flour, but I believe I should have added more! I will keep this recipe, do a little more research and practice on making bagels......and try it again some time!
These are fantastic! They took a little time to make but are definitely worth it.They are now my new favorite homemade bagel recipe and I will definitely be making them again!
My first attempt at bagels, and they turned out pretty good! I had to add quite a bit more flour than this recipe called for, and the dough was still very sticky. But all in all - they were very tasty and I will make them again.
These were very good, however I tried to save some time by making the dough in my bread machine. I used 3 cups of flour but the dough could practically be poured out of the bowl. I had to add at least another cup of flour to make it manageable...not exactly what I bargained for. I'm not sure I'll try again, but I'll definitely nix the bread maker!
