Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 4 tablespoons water (70° to 80°), divided
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast

  • In bread machine pan, place 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons water, cranberries, brown sugar, orange zest, salt, cloves, flour and yeast in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).
  • When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into nine balls. Push thumb through centers to form a 1-in. hole. Stretch and shape dough to form an even ring. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes; flatten rings slightly.

  • Whisk egg white and remaining water; brush over bagels. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and sprinkle with cornmeal. Place bagels 2 in. apart on prepared pan. Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
