Prepare the baking sheets or use nonstick sheets.
Remove dough from the machine, punch it down, and roll it out into a rectangle about 14 x 18. Divide into equal pieces and shape into bagel form or use a cutter. Place the bagels on the sheets and let them rise again. I put them in the oven to provide a draft free location.
This rise can be anywhere from 20 minutes to 4 hours depending on what else is going on in your life.
Preheat the oven to 400.
Bake just below the middle of a preheated 400 degree oven. The book calls for 20 to 25 minutes. I usually start at 15 minutes for the 1st sheet and less for the second.
These are best eaten while they are still warm. They can be frozen - you may want to slice them first so you can defost them in the toaster. NOTES : These are really excellent.
