I woke up this morning thinking about little everything bagel cookies and decided to see if this would work. Turns out it did! These little guys are entirely sweet with a nice almond flavor and they’re even gluten free. No onions or garlic here, I promise.
Where did the inspiration for this come from? In my attempt to make all 10 technical challenges from the 2020 season of British Bake Off, last weekend I made number 9 (!): this bizarre recipe. That’s a topic for another post. But before I assembled that strange thing, the individual cookies looked a lot like bagels to me and I knew I had to give bagel cookies a try.
I’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of how I made ’em below. Note that the almond cookie recipe is not mine, I am merely turning it into tasty little everything bagel illusion cookies. The cookie recipe is Paul Hollywood’s. Thanks Paul.
Wow these look great! I would love to try and make these next weekend!
Let me know what you think! So excited you’re going to try them 🙂
Going to try a keto friendly version by subbing sugar for swerve. Thanks for sharing!
Hi Sara. I made these for my Oscar Party this year. They are so good! I made them super small (5 grams each) so that they could be garnishes for our “Everything Everywhere” cocktail. For the topping, I substituted black nonpareils for the poppy seeds and added a bit of turbinado sugar, but everything else is the same. I can send you a picture if you’d like. Thank you so much!
This is great to hear!! Thank you for sharing, I’m so glad you liked them. Using them as cocktail garnishes is such a cool idea! I’d love to see a picture.
