Step 1: Making the Sable Biscuit and Adding the Jam

Ingredients
4 egg yolks
160 gr butter
160 gr granulated sugar

Using a standing mixer stir with the paddle attachment the sugar with the eggs. Then add the butter and salt and finally the flour. Spread the mixture on a 24cm baking pan and bake for 20 minutes at 180 ºC.

When the biscuit cools completely add the jam. The reason we add the jam is of course flavour but it also helps for the biscuit to become soft by absorbing hydration from the jam.
