Olive Bagels (Turkish Acma)

About Olive Bagels (Turkish Acma):

These bagels are named “açma” in Turkish and it means “something that is spreaded” etc. It is a name of a kind of pastry which resembles bagel. The difference between acma and pogaca is simple: Acma has more fat. There are many types of this acma like cheese, potatoes, plain etc. And this recipe is based on olive. Honestly, olive is best for acma. I used olive paste but chopped or diced olives can be used too. You can have these bagels on your breakfast with some Turkish tea. Ummm, looks yummy.
