Preparation steps

  1. Charcoal pastry dough

Homogenize the dough with vegetable coal and keep in the fridge for 2 hours. Spread at 1,5 mm thickness and cut out tart rings of 7 cm diameter and stripes of 23,5 cm length. Bake with the roasted almond powder at 160°C for 12 minutes. Gild the paste with egg yolks.
