Ah, well bravo on the gingerbread bagels!  Can you tell me what’s in them?  I think I saw bits of candied ginger, no?

Roxanne, can you tell us HOW they make the Cobblestones?  Hoe do they get all those little tiny yeast balls, do you hand roll each tiny ball?

Did you have to sign some kind of contract/agreement not to divulge the recipes?  I would think so.

Patrincia:

The gingerbread bagels have ginger flavoring, molasses, ginger and vanilla flavored chips—no candied ginger that I know of.

MrsM:

The cobblestones are made by rolling out sheets of raisin bread dough and cutting the sheets into 1 inch pieces with a pizza cutter, then the pieces are mixed with a concoction of oil, brown sugar, molasses, raisins, dried apples, and spices. We make so many of them that if I had to roll those pieces by hand, I’d go insane. It’s like monkey bread; the prepared gooey dough mass is measured into giant muffin cups before proofing.

Yes, I did have to sign a confidentiality agreement when I was hired. I can talk about basic methods used and major ingredients (but not amounts), but nothing else beyond that.

Roxanne, thanks.  I can make my own version, I was just wondering how they got put together.  I totally understand that you cannot reveal amounts. but the prep method sure does help. Thanks so much!
