Frosted Fresh Apple Squares
3-3/4 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 envelope RapidRise yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 cup butter or margarine
4 egg yolks
Powdered Sugar Glaze
In a large bowl, combine 1- 1/4 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water, milk, and butter until very warm (120 to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg yolks and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
Divide dough in half; roll half of the dough on lightly floured surface to fit the bottom of ungreased 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 1-inch jelly roll pan. Spread with Apple Filling. Roll remaining dough large enough to cover filling. Seal edges together. Snip surface of dough with scissors to let steam escape. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
Bake at 375oF for 20 minutes or until evenly golden. Drizzle with Powdered Sugar Glaze. Let cool in pan; cut into 24 squares.
