In a salad bowl, put the soft butter, then add the egg yolks and beat with a mixer until a smooth mixture is obtained.
Add the yellow sour peel, add lemon juice, as well as sugar, and beat again until the preparation is homogeneous and pounded a little.
Finally, mix the yeast and flour and mix one last time. The dough should be compact, homogeneous and slightly separated from the wall of the bowl.
