Put yeast and sugar in warm water. Mix flour and other ingredients to soft dough kneaded.
Knead good and let to grow 1 hour.
Then cut into 4 parts. Each part made circle.

On first circle put butter and pieces of Turkish delight-lokum. Repeat the same with other circles, add over the other, but on last dont put nothing.
All 4 circles make like one long vertical.
