Kolacky   In Memory of Ann Kubes

1 Quart liquid (1/2 milk, 1/2 water)
2 heaping tsp. salt
2/3 cup suger
dash nutmeg
2 packages fresh yeast (1/8 lb.)
9 cups flour (enough to make a soft dough not as stiff as bread dough)
2 egg yolks
3/4 cup shortening (1/2 butter, 1/2 lard)

Scald liquid and let cool.
When lukewarm add crumbled yeast, shortening (melted), suger, egg yolks, salt and nutmeg. Then add flour, knead well and let rise at least an hour or until double in size. Kneed again and let rise 45 minutes longer. Roll out on floured board into 1/4 inch thickness. Then cut into 2 inch squares, cover with heaping teaspoonful filling, stretch pieces just enough to pinch each of the two opposite corners together, making a square bun. Place in greased muffin tins.

Let rise about 45 minutes.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minute.
Brush tops with melted butter when removed from oven.
