Ok, crafty cookin' ladies, bare with me here, for I have invented...something...awesome!

Backstory: Long ago, I decided to spike my hair with Knox unflavored gelatin.  So I bought a box, used a packet, success! Blah blah blah.  There were 3 packets left.  I observed the box, noting the jello juice blocks [bleh, not a fan of jello], and the supertastically easy no-bake cheesecake recipe.  And it occurred to me - fathers day was coming up! And my dad likes cheese cake, and cream cheese, and all kinds of cheese-oriented things, so, no-bake cheesecake it was.

And it was good.

But while eating this yummy sno-cap-covered treat, it occurred to me [many things seem to occur to me ><] that the cheesecake tasted an awful lot like cream cheese ['cause, well, it was]. 

And I got to thinkin' - cream cheese tastes good on bagels!

So I plotted and schemed and a year later experimented with it, and I got it.
I call them bagelcakes and this is how they're made:

-1 box Knox unflavored gelatin
-Listed ingredients for no-bake cheesecake [sans-crust]
-2 packages of [6] plain white bagels [or, y'know, just get a pack of 12 if you're into that sort of thing]

Step 1: VERY CAREFULLY open up each and every bagel.  Try and get them even as possible.  Scoop out the bagelguts, leaving a nice shell.
Step 2: Lightly toast the bagelshells.  Don't bake 'em til they're crispy, just...kinda..let 'em firm up a bit, lightly crunchy is what you're going for ultimately. With that yummy toasted aftertaste.
Step 3: While you're toasting your bagelshells, blend up all the ingredients for the no-bake cheesecake
Step 4: Pour "batter" into toasted bagelshell canals
Step 5: Let set in fridge [doesn't take very long at all]

Voila! Bagelcakes!
Now, I told people about this, and so far every single person I've told thought it was genius.  Then I tried it, and it was genius.

I've only made plain ones thus far, but my then-assistant and I were brainstorming ideas to switch 'em up a bit:
-Using strawberry cream cheese instead of plain, for strawberry cheesecake!
-Using blueberry bagles
-Serving drizzeled with chocolate/caramel, or toped with your very most favoritest cheesecake topping

And what to do with the MASSIVE amount of bagelguts you havfe sittin' around the kitchen?
I have no idea.
We fed ducks.

Heeheehee Grin Awesome
I might just try this out one day xD

And knowing me, I'd probably save the inside of the bagels and eat them separately or something, I dunno =P

It actually is a good idea, because you can take them to go with out worrying too much how to transport just a "slice" with out smashing it all up.  Sounds like fun  Wink
