So I finally had a free weekend and decided to make the Bagels.
I took some advice I read on P&Qs and shaped the bagels after the first rise.
The process of boiling and baking was fairly easy - I just wish I could have fit more than 4 bagels in the water at one time.
I topped half with sesame seeds. I really had no expectations for these. I just needed to say I was back in with TWD. And I thought, wow, this is a lot of work for bagels and I probably wouldn't make them again. Then I tasted one. Woah. They had a thin chewy layer outside and chewy air-filled bread inside. I only ate one and took the rest in for the guys at work. I served them up with Nutella and Apple Pie Jam I recently got at the Philly Food Swap.

So for the make-up post, what did I miss in the last 4 months that I should get to baking??
