An adequate paste


  • For 6 people

  • Rest of the dough 30 minutes


  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 50 g caster sugar

  1. Open the vanilla bean in half and then scrape out the beans from the bean.
  2. Mix the vanilla beans with the sugar in a bowl.
  3. Sift the flour directly over the worktop.
  4. Cut the butter into small pieces and work it with your fingertips with the flour until the mixture is sandy and there are no more pieces of butter left.
  5. Dig a well in the sandblasting obtained.
  6. Break an egg and pour it into the well with the vanilla-flavoured sugar.
  7. Mix all the ingredients with your fingertips, without kneading too much of the dough obtained.
