For the Dough
½ lb. butter
3 T sugar
4 egg yolks
1 pkg. dry active yeast
2 T lukewarm water
½ cup milk
½ tsp. salt
3 cups flour (approximately)

Beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 4 yolks, one at a time, very well. Dissolve yeast in water and stir into the creamed mixture with ½ cup milk, salt and enough flour to make a soft dough that will leave the sides of the bowl clean. Divide dough in two and wrap in waxed paper. Refrigerate at least 2 hours, and preferably 4-5 hours. Remove dough from refrigerator 15 minutes before proceeding.

For the Filling, blend together:
1 lb. farmer cheese
8 oz. cream cheese
2 egg yolks
1/8 tsp. salt
½ cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
raisins

For Sprinkling
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ cup sugar
some milk

For Topping
beaten egg white

To Prepare the Turos Delkli:

Place rounded tablespoon of cheese mixture in center of each square. Draw 4 corners together. Place on greased baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg white and bake for 25 minutes at 350.
