- 3 large egg yolks
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium bowl mix the yogurt with the egg yolks. Add vanilla and stir.
Continue with the sugar, the orange zest and the applesauce. Stir well. Add the corn flour and mix until combined. Set aside.
Brush a round baking pan with melted butter. (32cm / 12.6” in diameter)
Using a rolling pin, transfer the first pastry sheet to the prepared pan. Arrange it nicely, making sure you’re also covering the sides of the pan.
Brush the whole surface with melted butter. Repeat the process with the second and the third pastry sheet.
Pour the yogurt mixture into the pan and smooth it with a spatula.
Turn the edges of the pastry sheets inwards and brush them with melted butter.
Cover with the last pastry sheet. Twist its edges inwards and butter the whole surface.
