I am so excited! These were really, really, really good. I tried making bagels @ home once a few years ago... the flavor was okay... but it was a ton of work & they looked a little funny. These, however... seem to be foolproof... and the instructions, plus tips from other reviewers have taught me so much to improve my lackluster bagel making skills. The dough seemed a little dry in the machine, but that could have been anything, not the instructions... so I added a tablespoon of warm water at a time until I saw it coming together better in the pan. I tried rolling the dough into ropes (from another reviewer) but had better luck flattening into a ball, making a hole, and stretching the dough out from there (from the recipe). Also, once I formed the bagels, I did let them sit over an hour to try to get them to be less craggy looking. Along those same lines, I did make 6 bagels though, because I wanted something to resemble big NY style bagel shop bagels. Overall, I am very, very, very pleased with this attempt and thank you so much for posting this recipe. I will be trying again in another day or so once the remaining 3 are gone!
