The goal I was talking about was also given away in the title... pumpkin spice bagels!!!
I've been wanting to make bagels since the beginning of summer- since I LOVE bagels, but will only eat them if they're whole wheat. Also, I love pumpkin if you couldn't tell..
I followed this recipe, but changed it to use whole wheat and zero sugar. Although the bagels are quite dense, they are delicious. I would highly recommend making these if you're a bagel person. They aren't quite NY bagels, but still delicious.
Here's me (sporting my new haircut for locks of love) with my friend Caitlin shaping the bagels:
A bit blurry, but it works. Here's a picture of the shaped bagels pre-boil:
Half boiled and half un-boiled:
bagels cooked, sitting on cornmeal (a little to much):
Delicious! I'm off to go to sleep so that I can have a very energy-efficient last day in California. Talk to you from New York! :)
