4 1/4 to 4 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 packages active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water (110F to 115)
3 Tbap sugar
1 Tbap. salt
1 Tbap sugar

In a mixer bowl combine 1 1/2 cups of the flour and the yeast.
Combine warm water, the 3 Tbsp sugar and the salt. Pour over the
flour mixture. Beat at low speed of electric mixer for about 30
seconds scraping the bowl as you mix. Beat 3 minutes at high speed.
Stir in as much remaining flour as you can mixing with a spoon.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining
flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic
(knead 6-8 minutes total). Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Cut into 12
portions; shape each into a smooth ball. Punch a hole in the center
of each. Pull gently to make a 1 1/2-2-inch hole. Place on a greased
baking sheet. Cover, let rise 20 minutes. Broil 5 inches from heat
3-4 minutes, turning once (tops should not brown). Heat 1 gallon
of water and 1 Tbsp of sugar to boiling; reduce heat. Cook 4 or 5
bagels at a time for 7 minutes, turning once; drain. Place on a
greased baking sheet. Bake at 375F in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
