"I always wanted to make my own bagels, so I searched to find a recipe I could try. For variation and flavor, I sometimes add cinnamon and raisins or honey and sesame seeds to the dough."

  1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the butter, sugar, salt and egg yolk; mix well. Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Shape into 12 balls. Push thumb through centers to form a 1-in. hole. Place on a floured surface. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes; flatten. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Drop bagels, one at a time, into boiling water. When bagels float to the surface, remove with a slotted spoon and place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

This was my first batch of bagels. When I dropped them into the boiling water, they immediately floated up, so I didn't know how long should they stay in the water. I let them sit in the water u...

Easy to make and a big hit with EVERYONE who has tried them. Even people who claim they don't like bagels rave about them. I add a little more yeast so they are larger and we use them for hamb...
