Rosen’s Bagels

With a bit more time to focus on bread, I have been refining weekend over weekend my bagel recipe.  Here is a photo from my most recent bagel bake:

I’ve rolled these bagels with my new favorite rolling technique.  This involves rolling each 4.5 ounce piece of dough into an 8-inch log.  Then wrapping that log around the hand, and rolling to seal.  This works really well, and shapes the bagels beautifully I think.

The primary criticism I get when people taste these bagels is that the crust is a bit “tough.”  I am still trying to figure out what exactly that means, and how can I make a more pleasing crusty texture.
