First of all we need to mix flour with butter an baking powder. The next step is to beat the egg yolks with sugar until smooth and add to the flour and butter mix. Work it with your hands until it apprars as firm dough and cut it in half.

Prepare your baking tray (cover it with a bit of butter to avoid sticking) and preheat the oven to 200 C. Roll one half of the dough and place it into the baking tray, than layer the filling and than grate the second half of the pastry on the top.
