How to make it

  • In a small bowl, combine the yeast with the water. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, and 1/4 cup sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Mix in the egg yolks, milk, and salt, combining well.
  • Stir in the dissolved yeast and the flour, and mix until the ingredients are thoroughly blended into a soft dough.
  • Cover the dough with a towel and set the dough aside to rise to about double in size, about 1 hour.
  • Grease a baking sheet.
  • Pinch off pieces of dough about the size of a golf ball, flatten the balls slightly, and transfer them to the baking sheet.
  • Place the balls at least 1 inch apart, and brush them liberally with the melted butter.
  • Set them aside to double in size again, about one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • Gently indent the top of the dough with your thumb, fairly deep.
  • Fill the indent with your filling of choice, then fold the dough over and seal.
  • Bake in 425 oven for 10- 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Immediately brush butter on the top and sprinkle with vanilla sugar or powdered sugar. Enjoy!
