How to cook

In a bowl, sift the flour with a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of baking powder. Add the egg yolks, 2 tbsp. of milk, a packet of vanilla sugar, 3.5 oz (100 g) of granulated sugar, grated lemon peel and cold sliced ​​butter.

Knead a smooth dough. At first it is like sand, but gradually it becomes homogenous and easy to work with. Cover the dough in cling film.

Refrigerate it for one hour. On a piece of baking paper, draw a circle with diameter of 9.5″ (24 cm). Roll out the dough with a thickness of 0.2″ (0.5 cm). Remove the excess dough with a sharp knife.

From it you can make balls by placing an almond or walnut in the middle and baking with the crostata!

Transfer the paper with the dough into a tray. Make 8 cuts in the dough, by stopping 2″ (5 cm) before the end of the circle. In these 2″ (5 cm), add apricot jam.

Fold the formed triangles towards the walls of the tray. Sprinkle the dough with granulated sugar and where there is jam, sprinkle it with sliced ​​almonds.

Bake the fruit pie at 360°F (180°C) in a preheated oven with a fan for about 35 minutes or until it is nicely browned.

Cool it on a wire rack.

Cut the Sun Butter Pie after it has cooled completely!
