To bake this apricot crescent recipe, sprinkle yeast over warm water to dissolve.
Cream butter, add egg yolks, mixing well. Add softened yeast and warm milk.

Divide circle into 8 equal wedges. Place heaping 1/4 teaspoon of Solo filling at wide end of each wedge.
Roll from wide end of wedge and place on lightly greased cookie sheet, curving ends slightly to form a crescent.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned.
