Preparation -- 1 hours and 20 minutes

Mix 250 gram all-purpose flour with a pinch of salt and 80 gram of sugar. Cut the butter into small cubes and add those one at a time to the flour mixture. Keep on mixing with the flat beater attachment.

The mixture will look crumbled. Add 1 egg yolk and 2 tablespoons of cold water. Keep on mixing until a dough ball has formed.  wrap the dough in cling film and let it rest in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius or 350 degrees fahrenheit. Coat the pie form with butter. Add a little bit of flour to the countertop and use a rolling-pin to roll out the dough. Keep enough dough aside for the hearts.

Press the dough into the cake pan and poke holes in the bottom using a fork.
