Ahhh!!! Good thought! Thanks! - But it's still darned hot, particularly when trying to spread creamed cheese!
Call me crazy but you could let the bagels cool a bit before spreading the cream cheese. Not only will that keep your hands from burning but the cooler bagel won't melt the cream cheese while you're trying to spread it.

i tried a new product from kraft for breakfast. called a baleful. was froz. so followed the directions for microwave. hot hot hot hot and then when cooled was like rubber. had cream cheese and strawberry jam in a bagel crust. maybe the jam was the source of the hot hot.l
