    Make the shell: In a bowl combine the first three ingredients; blend in the butter until the mixture resembles meal. Add egg yolks and vanilla and combine the mixture until it forms a dough. Remove the ring from a 10“ springform pan. Press 1/3 of dough onto the bottom of the springform pan, bake the dough in preheated 400 degree oven for 8 mins, and let it cool on a rack. Return the ring to the pan and pat the remaining dough into the sides of the pan, at least 2” high.
