Last Saturday morning, the girls and I finally got around to making bagels.  I had wanted to try my hand at homemade bagels, and after finding a fairly straightforward recipe on pinterest, we were set.  Actually, I tried to make these a couple of weeks ago but all we had at the time was all-purpose flour, so I had to make a trip to the store for bread flour.

The recipe I used is found here, so I won't rehash it except for captioning the photos.

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.
I added a little cheddar cheese to top off my bagels while Alison and the girls devoured the cinnamon and sugar coated bagels.

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.
