    Karin...'s Note:

    These are what I would desribe as "best ever bagels". They are crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I've had this recipe for years - and was passed on to me by another bagel lover. They are especially nice eaten whilst they are still warm, spread with Philadelphia Cream Cheese, thin slices of smoked salmon, a good squeeze of lemon juice and some freshly ground black pepper! They are also very nice for breakfast,toasted and spread with Philadelphia Cream Cheese,and raspberry jam!

      My husband and my daughter just made these for lunch. They switched the quantity of white flour for whole wheat (so it was 2:1 white/wholewheat flour) and added raisins and cinnamon to half of the dough and they all turned out amazingly!!! Will definitely be making these again and again! Thank you for a great recipe!

      Made these for the first time last week and am making them again today. I changed the topping and made 1/2 with cinnamon and coarse sugar; the other half I sprinkled with a sea salt blend. Both were great and all are gone. Thanks for a great and easy reccipe.
