Sable Breton
Whisk room temperature egg yolks and caster sugar.
Add soft creamy butter and emulsify using a whisk, and add the salt.
Add the flour and baking powder (previously sieved together) to the above mix using a spatula or hand scraper until dough is homogenized.
Roll 2/3 of the mix between 2 sheets of baking paper at 5mm thickness and cool in the fridge, when cold cut a ring of 18cm outside ring and 14cm inner ring, peel off the excess of dough and bake at 150°C between the rings for approximately 15 mins until light golden colour. Let the ring cool aside.
Roll 1/3 of dough to 2mm thickness between 2 baking paper, then set in fridge to set, brush the top of the dough with egg wash and put the precooked ring of Sable on top. Bake in a buttered 18cm cake ring at 150°C for approximately 20mins until the whole tart has a nice golden colour.
