This is how it works: First, the dough is made for the bottom and the edge. Pour the flour into a bowl and mix with the powdered sugar. Stir in baking powder. Then add the soft butter and the two egg yolks and knead everything quickly with your hands to form a smooth dough. Cover and place in the fridge for about 20 minutes.

For the cream, heat the milk in a saucepan. Add the sugar and stir well, then bring to the boil. Take a few tablespoons of milk and mix with the custard powder to form a smooth liquid. Pour it into the boiling milk and stir well until it forms a pudding. Let it cool. Stir in the sour cream until you have a smooth cream.
