Put yeast and sugar in small bowl of warm water and let rise. Then put flour, salt and sugar on table and mix well. Add butter and crisco and cream well together. Put in eggs and vanilla, then add the yeast and mix well. Let the dough rise 1/2 hour or until double in bulk. Then take a small ball of dough and press it down with your hand, fill with filling, roll the sides up and pinch together, tucking in the ends, and pinching them together, making a nut roll shape. Bake at 350F until done, about 10 minutes.
