Heavenly Garlic Bagel Mix In a Jar
3 C. flour 3 1/3 T. brown sugar 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. parsley flakes 1/4 tsp. paprika 3 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
Place yeast into a small zip baggie and set aside, or set aside a pre-packaged envelope of yeast. Mix and place remaining ingredients into a quart-size jar. Lay baggie of yeast on top of mix and apply lid. Attach the following instructions to the jar if giving as a gift: Heavenly Garlic Bagels
Place all ingredients of the jar plus 1 1/8 cups water into bread pan of your bread maker, in the order recommended by manufacturer. Insert the bread pan into the bread maker, and select "Dough" and loaf size (1 1/2 pound loaf) Select desired delay option, and press Start. When dough cycle has completed, remove dough from bread maker, and set aside two 1/4-inch balls of dough. You will use these later to determine if it is time to boil your bagels. If the dough pops to the top of the boiling water right away, you are ready! Place dough on a floured surface and divide into 8 equal portions. Form balls, and gently press your thumb through the middle of each ball, and slowly stretch dough into a bagel shape. Leave bagels to rise on same floured surface, lightly covered with a towel.
While bagels are rising, bring 3 quarts of water to a rolling boil. Add 1 tablespoon sugar to boiling water and stir to dissolve sugar. Drop first dough ball (you set these aside earlier) into boiling water, using a slotted spoon. When dough balls pass the test, boil the bagels by dropping them carefully into the boiling water, 2 or 3 at a time. Boil on each side for 1 1/2 minutes, then remove from water and cool on a wire cooling rack for 1 minute.
Brush each bagel with an egg wash (1 egg plus 1 tablespoon water) and sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds if desired. (Nonstick cooking spray may be substituted for egg wash.) Bake at 400 degrees F on baking sheet which has been sprinkled with cornmeal (can use greased baking sheet), for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Variation: Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and garlic bread seasoning for a more pronounced Italian flavor.

Process the remaining 4 cups flour and 1 cup shortening and using a wire whisk, mix thoroughly with the other batch. Refrigerate.
To make 6-8 biscuits, combine 1 1/2 cups mix with 1/3 cup cold milk. Stir well with a fork until a slightly stiff dough forms. Drop biscuits from a tablespoon onto a baking sheet sprayed with oil. Bake in a preheated 450 oven for 12-14 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.
To make biscuits for creamed chicken or turkey, add 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning to the mix before adding milk.
