Using a stand-mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, rub in together the flour, butter, sugar and salt. Add the whole eggs. Incorporate them in without giving too much strength to the dough. Keep the dough in the fridge.
Mix together the sugar (1) and custard powder. Add in the fromage blanc and milk. Add the melted butter and the zest. Using a stand-mixer fitted with the wisk attachment, whip up the egg whites, adding the sugar (2) at the end. Mix together the batter and the beaten egg whites. Roll out and dock the pastry dough.
