This was my first time making bagels, so I followed the recipe almost precisely. Only minor change was that I used a heaping tablespoon of salt for the dough, instead of an even one, since at least one reviewer recommended slightly more salt. They turned out phenomenal, other than the fact that many of them flopped open into crescents instead of staying as circles. Didn't affect the flavor or texture, though, which was great. I might consider doing as one reviewer suggests and forming the dough into balls, punching a hole in the center, and stretching it a bit, instead of trying to connect the end of the "ropes." A small amount of finely minced garlic, mixed with sesame seeds, made a delicious topping.
