Ingredients
  Milk 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Flour 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Active dry yeast 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Grated lemon peel 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Egg 1
  Egg yolk 1
  Vegetable oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Frying)

1 Heat milk, sugar, butter, and salt to hot (120°-130°F). Combine 1 cup flour, yeast, and lemon peel in mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly.
2 Combine milk mixture, yeast mixture, egg, and egg yolk. Mix thoroughly.
3 Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth€”about 10 minutes.

5 Punch down dough. Roll out dough 1/8 inch thick. Cut into 2 1/2-inch circles. Place 1 teaspoon of desired filling on half the circles; cover with plain circles. Using water, moisten edges and press them firmly to seal.
