    Instructions
    Bagels
    1. In the bowl of a stand mixer whisk together water, yeast, 3 tbsp brown sugar and 1 1/2 cups flour. Cover and allow to ferment for 30 minutes.
    2. Fit mixer with dough hook attachment. To the mixing bowl add 1 cup flour, 1 tsp salt, spices, butter, vanilla and whisk to combine. Knead mixture, adding 1/4 cup of flour at a time, ensuring the flour is absorbed before adding more. Knead and add flour until dough starts to pull away from the side of the bowl, approximately 5-7 minutes. Add pecans and apple, continue to knead until incorporated. Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover and allow to rise until double in size in a warm draft free area.
    3. Preheat oven to 400℉. Fill a large shallow pot with water, add remaining 3 tbsp brown sugar and 1 tsp salt. Bring to a simmer.
    4. Deflate dough by kneading 3-4 times. Divide dough into 10 equal portions. Roll each portion into a smooth ball. Punch a finger through the centre of the dough ball, gently stretch the hole making it approximately 1 1/2″- 2″ in diameter (the hole will shrink). Once the water is boiling drop in 3-4 bagels, depending on the size of your pot. Cook for 1 minute on each side. Remove to a wire rack. Continue to boil bagels. Sprinkle each bagel generously with sugar topping. Place bagels on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for approximately 25 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and allow to cook completely on a wire rack.
    Topping
    1. In a small bowl stir together all ingredients.
    Recipe Notes

    Add enough flour when kneading to be able to handle the dough with bare hands.
