Adapted for gluten free: I used Bobs Red Mill 1 to 1 gf flour and added a cup of grated mozzarella cheese to make the first batch. Had to add a bit more water than the recipe calls for. They were beautiful but didn't rise so we're dense and slightly raw. Second batch I used Williams Sonoma cup 4 cup flour but no cheese. Came out perfect. As close to real NY bagel bakery bagels as I can imagine. Daughter wants me to start selling them!

ok, I'm not by any means a novice cook and esp not a unexp'd baker but this IS the first time I attempted bagels, so I followed the instructions to the letter, I had one issue, which is well, quite a big one. My bagels came out looking amazing and smelling amazing but when I tried to take them off the parchment, they were stuck. I tried placing a bit of water under the paper on the hot pan to "steam" them off and it worked a bit but there are still 3 bagels that no matter what I do, I cannot get the paper off the bottom. It's like it's baked right on. Quite disappointing really because who wants to eat a bagel with parchment paper all over the bottom? :(
