Hazelnuts bake 10 minutes in very hot oven or roast for 3-4 minutes in a dry pan, then grind . The yolks were removed and broken down by the mixer together with sugar for yielding a slightly yellow cream. Add the lemon juice and grated lemon rind. Egg whites are broken down into the snow, carefully placed the bowl on the cream of yolks and pour hazel nuts and flour. The mixture is stirred gently with a wooden spoon in one direction only to homogenization. Round baking tin with butter and pour the mixture into it.
