All purpose flour 300g + more for rolling out (about 2 ¼ cup)
Butter 150g - COLD! (about 10 tbsp)
Eggs 2 large yolks
Powdered sugar 75g (about ⅔ cup)
Vanilla beans or extract
Favorite Jam 250g (better to have some more on hand) (¾ cup)
Sift together the flour and powdered sugar into a large bowl. Cut your dough into tbsp sized chunks and squeeze in the dough until you have a shaggy dough with no big chunks of butter left. Using a spatula mix in your two egg yolks and in a pinch of our salt and vanilla if you like. Using your hands combine this dough into a solid mass. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for a 30 minutes. Roll your chilled dough into a large circle that is 1/8 inch thick and top with jam or preserves, crimping the edges as you like.
Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes until your crust begins to brown.
