dear blog,

yesterday i was pretty bored so i made cornbread and then when carly got home from school we made homemade bagels! i will definitely be searching for a better cornbread recipe, but the bagels that we made turned out so good! they are all already gone. and i definitely plan on making them in the near future so, for no other reason than if i don't save the recipe i will never be able to find it again, here it is:

Homemade Bagels (makes 12 bagels)

1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 1/4 cups warm milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg yolk
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the butter, sugar, salt and egg yolk; mix well. Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Shape into 12 balls. Push thumb through centers to form a 1-inch hole. Place on a floured surface. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes; flatten. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Drop bagels, one at a time into boiling water. When bagels float to the surface, remove with a slotter spoon and place 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
