Cream butter with 1/3 cup flour.
Roll mixture between waxed paper to 12x6-inches.
Chill 1 hour or longer.
Soften yeast in water.
Combine next 3 ingredients; cool to lukewarm.
Add yeast and egg; mix well.
Add 3 3/4 cups flour or enough to make soft dough.
Knead on floured surface 5 minutes.
Roll to 14-inch square.
Place chilled butter on one half; fold over other half: seal edges.
Roll to 20x12-inches; seal edges.
Fold in thirds so you have 3 layers.
Roll to 20x12-inches again.
Fold and roll twice more; seal edges.
Fold in thirds to 12x7-inches.
Chill 45 minutes.
Cut dough crosswise in fourths.
Roll each fourth (keep remainder chilled) to 22x7-inches, paper-thin.
Cut in 10 pie-shaped wedges, 4 inches at base and 7 inches long (you'll have an extra 1/2-wedge on each end; put together).
To shape: Begin with base (if dough has shrunk back, pull to original size) and roll loosely toward point.
Place 3 inches apart on un-greased baking sheet, point down; curve ends.
Cover; let double, 30 to 45 minutes.
Beat egg yolk with milk; brush on rolls.
