in a small saucepan, scald 1/2 cup milk, add 1/4 cup water and 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar.
Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm.
add 2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
In mixing bowl, combine:

3 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cut in 1/4 cup shortening

Add 2 egg yolks and the milk/yeast mixture

Knead until shiny but not sticky. I use the dough hook attachment on my mixer and let it go for about 5 minutes.

Divide dough into three equal pieces on placed on greased cookie sheet. Cover with a clean dish cloth and let dough rise in a warm place until doubled in size. (About one hour)

3 tablespoons butter
