I know I've said it before, but I do like a cranberry & orange combo in almost anything, & your bagels bare this out, even if I did use a nicely rounded measure of the berries as well as using 2 tablespoons of the orange zest! Absolutely delicious! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed in the current ADOPT A TAG event]
