In a clean surface area we put the flour in a volcano way.
In the center, we add the cut butter to a room temperature, two eggs, salt and the 4 spoons of sugar.
With the hands, we incorporate all the ingredients untill make a gully pastry.
We divide it into 4 equal parts and knead it a little just untill it be standard (do not handle to much the pastry)

We press the edges with the fingers to mix both parts and give form to the pie.

We take it to the preheat oven and bake it to 350 F or 180 C untill the pie gets brown. The time depends on the type of oven.
