The recipe I used is found here, so I won't rehash it except for captioning the photos.
Ada and Kate helping to roll the dough for their bagels into snakes.
The bagels rising. Unfortunately, our house is a wee bit chilly on winter mornings, so the bagels didn't rise as well as I hoped they would.
Boiling the bagels.
I made 6 cinnamon and sugar bagels and 2 with an asiago/Italian cheese mix.

After cooking the bagels for 10 minutes, it was time to flip them and bake them for another 10 minutes.
The bagels were delicious, although they were a little dense because they didn't rise long enough. It was fun to make the bagels, but I was surprised by how long it took (remember, I'm a novice). I think that Alison and the girls enjoyed their bagels with cinnamon and sugar, but nothing compares to the cheesy goodness of the cheese bagels.
