What a tasty recipe-but like so many others, our bagels weren't that pretty,thus the downgrade to 4 stars. For some reason, the bagels all rose well, were formed into the ropes and then into rings and this is where things went wrong. After they were formed into rings, and left to proof, all the rings came undone. We used water to hold the dough into a ring, and we pinched the ends together to no avail. The next time we make these, I think we'll just roll into balls and stick our finger through the center for the hole in the middle of our bagels. Outside of this, the bagels tasted great, rose like they should, baked to a shiny perfection (though not quite shaped bagel-y). This is a keeper of a recipe and with a minor alteration to the handling of the dough, it will likely be a 5 star recipe.
