Servings 20 bagel bites

Ingredients

  • 2 cups bread flour or unbleached all purpose flour
  • 4 tsps baking powder (make sure it’s not expired or it won’t rise)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 5.3 oz Fage non-fat Greek yogurt (not regular yogurt, it will be too sticky)
  • 1 package cream cheese (cut into 20 cubes)
  • 1 egg beaten
  • optional toppings: everything bagel seasoning sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic flakes, dried onion flakes**

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Place parchment paper or a silpat on a baking sheet. If using parchment paper, spray with oil to avoid sticking.

  2. In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk well.
  3. Add the yogurt and mix with a fork or spatula until well combined, it will look like small crumbles.
  4. Lightly dust flour on a work surface and remove dough from the bowl, knead the dough a few times until dough is tacky, but not sticky, about 15 turns (it should not leave dough on your hand when you pull away).
  5. Divide dough into 20 equal balls (give or take). Flatten each ball into circles, then place 1/2 tablespoon cream cheese on each. Cover the cream cheese well and roll into a ball. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.

  6. Top with egg wash and sprinkle with seasoning of your choice if desired.
  7. Bake on the top rack of the oven for 20 minutes. Let cool at least 10 minutes before eating.
