Ingredients:  
1 1/2 cups butter
1/3 cup AP flour
2 pkgs active dry yeast
3/4 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3 3/4 to 4 1/4 cups AP flour
1 egg yolk
1 Tb milk

Directions:
Directions:
Cream butter with 1/3 cup flour. Roll mixture between waxed paper to a 12 X 6 inch rectangle. Chill one hour or longer. Soften yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Heat 3/4 cup milk, sugar and 1 tsp salt until the sugar dissolves. Cool to lukewarm. Add softened yeast and 1 egg. Beat well. Stir in two cups of the flour, beat well. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a moderately soft dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic. (8 to 10 minutes) Roll to 14 inch square. Place chilled butter on one half, fold over the other half and seal edges (very important - it will save lots of trouble with butter leaking in the rolling and folding process.) Roll out to a 12 X 12 inch square. Seal edges; fold in thirds (chill at least 1/2 hour between each rolling) Roll to a 21 X 12 inch rectangle. Fold and roll asabove twice more; seal edges. Fold in thirds to a 12 X 7 inch rectangle. Chill 45 minutes. Cut dough crosswise in fourths. Roll each fourth into a 22 X 7 inch rectangle. Cut each in 10 pie shaped wedges, 4 inches at the base and 7 inches long , leaving a triangle with a 2 inch base at each end. Roll loosely from base toward the point. Place on ungreased baking sheets, point down; curve ends. Cover, let rise until double (30 to 45 minutes). Beat egg yolk with one Tb milk; brush on rolls. Bake at 375 F for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from sheets, cool.
