Whisk egg yolks with sugar and salt until smooth and creamy.
Separately whisk egg whites until they resemble soft, firm clouds.
Add the egg yolk mixture to the bowl with the dough, gently stir it in. Preferably this should be done using your hands, to make sure you don't over-beat the dough.
Next, add the very softened butter, salt and vanilla, and using your hands or now a mixer with the hook attachment, gently stir in the butter into the dough.
Next, add the egg whites, and slowly beat until fully combined. Add the flour and stir until combined. Knead the dough in the bowl, make it into a ball, cover again with a clean kitchen towel and transfer the bowl to a warm place. Let it rest for 2-3 hours.
Using a food processor ground the almonds, so they almost resemble almond flour.
Add ground almonds, orange zest, dried fruits, and raisins to the dough. Stir well to combine.
Use butter or baking spray to grease the Paska Baking Forms, if desired, cut and add parchment paper inside.
Fill them with dough halfway. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let them rest for 30-40 minutes, but not longer.
