Directions:
Mix flour, salt and 2 Tbs sugar together. Add butter and shortening to dry ingredients and mix together with a pastry blender. Set aside. Scald 1 cup of milk and let cool. Add yeast to milk along with egg yolks. Add your dry ingredients with the shortening with the milk mixture. Cover bowl and let stand in bowl for an hour and a half. Once it's doubled, beat your egg whites and gradually add 1 cup of sugar until mixture is stiff. Take dough and divide it into 3 parts. Roll out balls one at a time onto floured board. Spread out to a 12 inch sized circle and spread one third of the egg white mixture onto the dough leaving an inch and a half of the dough exposed on the outer edge. Sprinkle cinnamon, raisins, and nuts over the egg white mixture and then roll dough to make a long log. Pinch all edges together and fold under. Flip dough over so that the seam side is down. Place on greased cookie sheet. All 3 should fit onto one cookie sheet and they should be slightly bent into a crescent shape. Cover with paper towels and let stand for one hour. Bake 375 for 20-25 minutes. Ice with a mixture of powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla while still hot.
