yumminess in theory
i think they look really yummy. and they were super fun to make! i am wondering why i never tried it sooner. but finally, this weekend, i made homemade bagels.
pumpkin spice with pecans. how can that be bad, right? and the dough was very easy to shape. i guess you can tell from the photo that i was not too exacting with that part.
boiling them was fun! it reminded me of making donuts, but with water instead of oil. they puffed right up and looked cool.
unfortunately, the texture was off. not sure, but they were kind of soft and dough-ey. not in a good way. i suppose i would either bake them longer, or boil them longer next time. i'm kind of an instant grat girl, however, not sure there will be a next time.
i decided to leave em on the counter overnite, because i have a hard time throwing food away. low and behold, the next morning, they were drier and more 'bagel-like.' hmmm. i had one for lunch. it was okay.
such is the life of a not-so-gourmet girl. i am pretty sure my local bagel boy should not worry too much about me :)
