- 2Put the whole eggs plus 1 egg yolk into the centre and blend with your fingers.
- 3Add the softened butter and knead together.
- 4Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and then add to the potatoes; the warm potatoes will help to activate the yeast.
- 5Puree the potatoes and add to the flour mixture.
- 6Add the sugar, salt, vanilla, lemon rind and enough wine to bind the ingredients together.

- 11Punch the dough down and divide each ball of dough again into 6 or 7 small balls.

- 13Fold the top and bottom of the circle over to cover the ends of the filling; then take the left side and fold over 2/3 of the dough to cover the line of filling.
- 14Fold the right side over to the left edge.
- 15Press the sides together at the centre and edges, as if you were tucking in a baby in a blanket.
