I struggled just a bit to get the raisins incorporated into the cinnamon dough, but they eventually figured out that I wasn't going to give up, and they finally acquiesced into submission. Sometimes you just have to show 'em who's boss! I really, really loved the chewy texture of these bagels and they tasted divine, especially when topped with this cinnamon cream cheese spread.
I also made some plain bagels which I topped with a combination of salt, poppy seeds and sesame seeds. These were quite tasty made into curried chicken salad sandwiches.
