Dissolve yeast in warm water in a small bowl. In a separate larger bowl, combine milk, butter, egg yolks, salt, yeast mixture, 3 cups flour, and 1/3 cup sugar. Beat this mixture until it is smooth. Stir in remaining flour to form the dough. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it. Let the dough rise for 45 minutes. Punch the dough down and transfer it to a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough and divide it in half. Roll each half to ¼ inch thickness and cut with a round cutter. Place about ½ teaspoon of jelly in the center of half of the dough circles. Brush edges with egg white and top with the other half of the dough circles. Press the edges down to seal tightly. Place on a greased baking sheet and cover, letting the dough rise for 45 minutes. In a deep-fryer, heat the oil to 375 degrees and fry a few of the donuts a few at a time for 1-2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels and roll warm donuts in remaining sugar.
