cocktail rye bread

I am looking for a recipe to make cocktail rye bread, and where to buy a square pan less then 4"x4"x9". Like the store bought cocktail rye bread.

Peter Reinhart's Vollkornbrot (also Hamelman) is my choice for the perfect deli rye! Outstanding!

I make the caraway rye bread from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.  I make it in baguette pans and it becomes these perfect size slices of appetizer breads.  I make both classic chopped liver and chopped herring salad and this bread if the perfect foil for each.

This is a recipe of mine - adapted from one by Jeffrey Hamelman - that brings me pleasure each time I make it.  Give it a whirl!

BTW- I just bake it in small loaf pans and that works well.
