Reuben Bread, Rye Bread, White Bread and Apple Squares

Yes it was a rainy day so I made bread. Actually 2 kinds or technically 3 kinds. I love carbs. I was looking through some of the blogs I follow and found two recipes I could not resist. The first was from Noshtalgia. The recipe was No Knead to Thank Me. I had planned on making the No Knead bread that takes 18 hour to proof but I did not have time to start it yesterday. So when I saw her photos I was in. It was so easy and the dough came out with a great texture. And the taste. Wow.

Next on My Food and Life Encounters I found Reuben Bread. It starts with a Rye Bread recipe and than you just add the filling. That is what we had for dinner tonight. The recipe made a lot of dough so I just made half the recipe for the filling and with the extra dough I made a loaf of rye bread.
Lets see... I felt like Apple Squares. It is a recipe that I got from my mom.
1 cup of butter
3 cups of flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
Crumble ingredients in a bowl.
1 3/4 apple sauce
grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp grround clove
Mix last 4 ingedients.
Place 1/2 of flour mixture in bottom of greased 9x9 pan, I use pyrex glass pan.
Spread apple sauce mixture over bottom layer. top with remaining flour mixture. Bakde 350 degreess for 45 - 60 minutes.
