Shape the dough into a cylinder 12 inches long.
Cut the cylinder into 9 pieces then push your thumbs through the middle of each piece for form a bagel.
Spray a baking sheet lightly with a non stick cooking spray.
Place the bagel pieces onto the prepared baking sheet.
Cover and let rise in a warm, draft free area for 20 minutes or until doubled in size.
Bring a pot of water to a full boil.
Sprinkle the sugar into the water then submerges one bagel at a time, upside down with a slotted spoon for 20 seconds or until slightly inflated.
Remove the bagels and place back on the baking sheet.
Bake the bagels for 15 minutes or until nicely browned and hollow sounding when tapped on the bottom.

Makes 9 bagels

Submerging the bagels in the boiling water with the sugar gives them their shiny appearance and their chewy texture. It also deactivates the yeast to keep them from rising more. One way to test your dough to see if it has risen enough is by pressing two fingers into the dough. If the imprints remain the dough is ready to bake.
