Talking of pumpkins, my pumpkin milk shake post from last year got published in ‘The Pumpkin Spice‘ handbook. I was so excited to see the glossy full size picture of the milkshake in an actual book. Publishers were kind enough to send a complementary copy and it is filled with nothing but pumpkin recipes.
I found the recipe for these Pumpkin bagels in the book. I’ve never made bagels and was under the impression that they were very time consuming and difficult to make. But I found they were very similar to other breads.
I halved the original recipe and made only 6 bagels. The pumpkin and spices added lot of flavor to the bagels. They turned out much better than the store bought ones. We had them with cream cheese.
