1 egg yolk

50 g powdered sugar

200 g wheat flour

pure vanilla essence


100 g butter (room temperature)

120 g sugar

Drop the wheat flour and the butter into a food processor, turn for 20 seconds, then add powdered sugar, the egg yolk and vanilla. Place down (use a rolling-pin) into a (9-inch) pie pan and press down along the bottom and all sides. Pierce the dough by using a fork, then set aside in the fridge.

Preheat the oven at 170° C.

Beat the butter with sugar and orange zest until whipped and carefully drop one egg, then the other one (do not stop beating while dropping the eggs). Go ahead, beat until smooth, then add the almond flour and the wheat flour. Whisk until whipped.

Take the pie dough from the fridge and spread the red fruit jam over the dough.
