In a mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water. Let this mixture stand for about 5 minutes, or until it is foamy. Add the milk, 1/2 cup melted butter, sugar, salt, egg yolks and vanilla extract. Stir well with a wooden spoon until incorporated.
Add the flour gradually while stirring, adding only enough just until the dough turns into a shaggy mass. Stir the dough with a wooden spoon until it gathers in the center of the bowl. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let the dough rise for 1 and 1/2 hours.
Deflate the dough. On a floured board, roll it to an 18x14 inch rectangle. Brush melted butter all over the dough. Cut the long side of the dough into 8 or 9 one-inch strips using a pizza cutter or a knife.
Roll the strips into coils or spirals. Arrange them on a baking pan that is lined with parchment paper. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 F and bake the mallorca for 12-18 minutes or until lightly golden. Sprinkle icing sugar on top.
