I'm intrigued! (And I live in rural Vermont, so I have an incentive to give this a try.) One question, though. We switched over from a cornmeal dusting to parchment paper when baking homemade pizzas because we didn't like the cornmeal on the bottom of the crust. Do you think parchment paper will work here as well?

Colleen: I'm with you on the parchment paper for pizza. For bagels, I've heard there can still be sticking with parchment paper, so people have suggested oiling the paper. It's worth a try. I might give it a go myself next time.

Hi. Not a bagel comment...but just a question (didn't know where to post it).
Did your grandmother ever make Pastia? If so, do you have a good recipe for it?

Those bagels look amazing.

The bagels look lovely! I recently made soft pretzels (also a big NY thing) and they were awesome. This recipe is not much different - a little more sweet (pretzels called for sugar, but not the malt syrup or honey) but essentially the same otherwise, including the boil. I put them on my Silpat and had no problem with sticking.

This may be my next project!

NurseJen: I need to get a Silpat. I've never made pretzels but that would be fun to do with the kids.

Husband: There are some bagels in the freezer for when you're off your diet.

Hoot: Is Pastia the same as rice pie? My grandmother's sister made a great rice and ricotta pie for Easter. The recipe is here:

Yes!! Thanks so much!
