These are good; however, as a first-time bagel artist, I could have used a bit more guidance on a couple of points, i.e. how big to make the hole. I ended up rolling my pieces into a rope and then attaching the ends with some water and semi-pinching. I broiled one minute each side and also, boiled one minute each side after reading a lot of other recipes that recommended this shorter boiling time. I did use a tablespoon of molasses in with the boiling water. I used poppy/sesame/salt for one topping, and rolled dried cherries into some of them while shaping them. I also topped the cherry ones with sugar which I would not do again because it makes the outside too sticky. My problem with these is the browning, er, burning on the bottoms...I baked for only 15-20 minutes because the bottoms were burning...I tried with just PAM on the bake sheets and with parchment paper...same problem both times. Anyone have tips on this or on how they freeze once baked?
