Preparation method

Base:

  1. Place the butter and salt in the mixing bowl of your food processor and combine at moderate speed.
  2. Split the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds to the mixture.
  3. Add one full egg and two egg yolks and mix well until smooth.
  4. Mix the Zùsto with the flour.
  5. Add half of the flour and Zùsto mixture to the egg mixture.
  6. Knead briefly at moderate speed, then add the rest of the flour mixture.
  7. Gradually increase to a faster speed until a ball of dough forms.
  8. Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and briefly knead by hand.
  9. Allow the dough to rest for an hour in the fridge.
