1. Crumble the yeast into a bowl. Add the lukewarm milk and 1 cup flour, and set aside to rise in a warm place, covered, until it doubles in size.

Brush with melted butter, then spread with Nut Filling or Poppy Seed Filling all over the dough. Roll up like a jellyroll and place the rolls onto baking sheets. Let rise, covered, for a half-hour.
