Delicious chewy bagels 

These chewy bagels are super tasty. You can't resist their chewy texture, soft, springy interiors, and malty-yeasty flavor. But even more irresistible? The way you’ll patiently, lovingly bring the yeast to life with flour and warm water. 

The way you’ll put away your phone and everything else you’re doing to mold them into little bagel-babies with your own two hands. The way your entire house will smell of freshly baked bread. And, of course, the way your family will gaze adoringly in your direction when you pull these out of the oven on Sunday morning.
