Directions:
Dough:
Place yeast in bowl with sugar. Pour warm milk over & let sit.
Place flour in work bowl of stand mixer. Add butter & work together. Add egg yolks & egg: mix well. REMOVE YEAST FROM TOP OF MILK, then use as much milk as needed. (Be careful with liquid - not all may be needed) Work until soft dough forms - dough holds together. Divide into 1" balls. Roll each ball flat. Place nut filling in middle. Fold in 1/2 to form 1/2 moon shape. Brush top side with egg white wash before baking. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until lightly brown. Sprinkle with icing sugar.

Filling:
Beat egg whites with sugars. Add ground nuts & extract, if using. If not moist enough, add milk (or whipping cream). Must make impressions with spoon.

Personal Notes:
Franz & Betty Mueller had us for Ice Wine & Christmas cookies one afternoon & served these cookies. I was immediately in love with them. She had me over to watch her bake some. I tried to write down her instructions as best I could.
