I am a freaking genius I tell you.
An absolute genius for making these wonderful fall pumpkin bagels. I am so confident that once you taste them you will scream from the mountain tops that I am a freaking genius as well. When the season change, I get excited because that means different ingredients are in season. Pumpkin is one of those ingredients for the fall. Pumpkin and apples, that is. I have a wonderful apple treat for you later this week. But these bagels…have you ever had a Cinnamon Crunch bagel from Panera? If you haven’t then I don’t know what you are smoking and recommend that you go back to your dealer and get a refund immediately! The reason that I ask is because there is a nice crunch to the Cinnamon Crunch Bagels at Panera and I found way to duplicate that texture. I am proud to say that these come as a very close runner-up.
