While the mixer is working divide the egg yolks from the whites.
2Place the white a medium bowl , add pinch of light salt and with an electric whisk beat the eggs white until stiff and dry.
Go back to the mixer; The butter and sugar should be nice and creamy. Add the egg yolks, the yogurt and vanilla extract. Let it work for one minute.
Add the baking powder to the rice flour and slowly add the dry mix with mixer, one teaspoon at the time.
You will obtain a thick and sooth dough.
