    These home-baked bagels are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and great with cream cheese or butter!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small bowl, mix yeast, sugar and warm water together and let stand 3 minutes.
    2. 2
      Mix 2 cups of flour with the salt in a large bowl; then add the yeast mixture. Stir until combined and slowly mix in the rest of the flour.
    3. 3
      Knead dough on a floured surface for 5 minutes, adding additional flour if necessary. Dough should be fairly smooth and somewhat firm. Place dough in a greased bowl, cover and let rise until double.
    4. 4
      Punch dough down (if making cinnamon raisin bagels, add the cinnamon and raisins now -- knead just enough to swirl the cinnamon through the dough). Divide and shape into 12 balls. (For larger bagels, make only 8 balls.) Allow to rest for 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Bring 2 quarts of water to boil. Make a hole in each ball of dough and pull open about 2 inches, making a bagel shape. Place the shaped dough onto a cookie sheet and cover for 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Preheat oven to 350°F Drop 2 or 3 bagels at a time into the boiling water for about 45 seconds, turning each once.
    7. 7
      Drain cooked bagels on a wire rack. Mix egg white and water; brush tops with egg white mixture and top with optional toppings, if using. Place bagels on greased baking sheets.
    8. 8
      Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes, turning once half-way through baking. (If making plain bagels, you can flip the bagels; otherwise, just rotate.) Bagels will be lightly browned and shiny.

      She writes, "I love this recipe because the bagels taste so much better fresh than they do bought from the store -- the kids and hubby adore them! They really are not that difficult or time consuming to make either. :)".

      Whoa! way too much salt! Otherwise it was pretty good... I added a cup of chopped cranberries and cinnamon. My husband agreed....too much salt, but liked them other than that.
