Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 12

1 Yeast
1 1/2 Cup(s) Warm water, 110 degrees
4 1/2 To 5 c flour
2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
2 Tablespoon(s) Sugar
Combine yeast and 1/2 c warm water in measuring cup, stirring with a
fork until dissolved. Combine 2 c flour, salt, and sugar in bowl. Add
dissolved yeast and remaining 1 c of warm water. Beat vigorously with
whisk or spoon for 2 minutes. Gradually add enough of remaining flour,
1/4 c at a time, to make a soft dough. Turn out of bowl. Knead until
smooth and elastic, adding as little flour as necessary, about 8-10
minutes. (don't skimp on the kneading!) Place dough in a bowl, cover
with plastic wrap, put in warm place to rise until doubled in size.
(45-60 minutes. Watch carefully.) Punch down dough and divide into 12
equal portions (about 3-4 oz each. Weigh dough on a kitchen scale for
accuracy and even size.) Form into smooth balls, gently pulling sides
of dough down and tucking ends underneath. Place on floured surface.
Let rest 10 minutes. Using a finger or wooden spoon handle, punch a
hole in the center of each piece and twirl or stretch into a bagel
shape. Cover with a towel and let rest 20-30 minutes. Bring to a boil
6 cups of water, 1 Tbsp sugar and 1 Tbsp salt in a large shallow pan.
Gently drop 3 or 4 bagels at a time into the simmering water. Poach
first side 2 minutes, turn to cook other side 2 minutes. Remove bagels
from water with a slotted spoon and place on a towel to cool. Over
the sink, brush each bagel with egg white wash (1 egg white mixed with
1 Tbsp water). You may now sprinkle bagel with salt, poppy seeds,
minced garlic or onion, sesame seeds, whatever suits your fancy. Place
bagels on a greased baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 30
minutes. If you like your crust crispy rather than chewy, bake at 375
degrees for 10 minutes, then brush on the egg wash and sprinkle with
desired topping and return bagels to oven for 20 minutes more. Remove
from baking sheet and cool on wire racks. The Polka Dot Palace BBS
