I remember trying a bialy for the first time at a local Jewish delicatessan about twenty years ago. I said to myself: Better than a bagel! (That opinion still stands.) There are *many* recipes online for bialys. This particular recipe was found on the King Arthur Flour website. Note: New York-style bialys contain both minced onion [and] poppy seeds.

How to Make Bialys Presented by King Arthur Flour

Step-by-Step

  1. *Note: High-gluten flour will yield beautifully chewy bialys. Substitute unbleached bread or all-purpose flour if you like; cut the water back by about 2 tablespoons if you use bread flour, 3 tablespoons for all-purpose flour.
  2. Place the dough ingredients in a bowl, and mix and knead — by hand, mixer, or bread machine — for about 7 minutes, till you've made a smooth, fairly stiff dough.
  3. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl or other rising container, cover it, and allow it to rise for about 90 minutes, till it's just about doubled in bulk.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl or other rising container, cover it, and allow it to rise for about 90 minutes, till it's just about doubled in bulk.
  5. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  6. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl or other rising container, cover it, and allow it to rise for about 90 minutes, till it's just about doubled in bulk.
  7. Place the shaped circles on a parchment-lined or lightly greased baking sheet.
  8. Use a sharp knife or pair of scissors to snip a 1" hole in the bottom of each bialy.
  9. Evenly spread the filling into the center of each bialy, the part defined by the rimmed edge. Add the poppy seeds, if using.
  10. Top the bialys with a sheet of parchment or aluminum foil; then with another baking sheet. You want to weigh them down.
  11. Bake the bialys for 4 minutes. Remove them from the oven, and remove the baking sheet and parchment or foil.
  12. Return the bialys to the oven, and bake for an additional 7 minutes, till they're a dappled golden brown.
    Remove from the oven, and cool on a rack. Repeat with the remaining dough.
