  6. Sprinkle a bit of oil and flour into a 12" x 7" x 2" (3qt.) baking pan
  7. Roll the dough and wax paper together and transfer to the pan - unroll and remove paper

Filling

  1. In a large bowl, mix together egg yolks, retaining the whites for later

  5. Pour filling into pan, spreading it evenly over the dough

Repeat the dough rolling/transfer steps for the second half of the dough and place ontop of the filling. Poke the top of the dough to create small air vents.

Cut into squares while still cooling, to avoid cracking.
