|Dough right after I added the liquid ingredients to the flour.|
|I shaped the dough into a ball before letting it rest for 5 min.|
|Final dough placed in an oiled bowl.|
|I evenly distributed the dough and formed them into balls.|
|I used the thumb method to shape the dough into bagels.|
I have to admit that I'm embarrased at how deflated and too doughy these turned out.
I definitely will be trying another recipe; this one found on smittenkitchen.com is an adaptation of Peter Reinhart's. From the pictures she posted the bagels look like they have an awesome crunch to them . So again, once I try out this recipe I'll let you all know how they turned out.
