In the meantime, take the shortcrust pastry out of the refrigerator, roll it out, line a greased, flat cake tin with it and prick the pastry several times with a fork. Also pull up one edge and cut away the excess dough with a knife.

For the quark filling, put 250 grams of low-fat quark in a bowl and mix with 75 grams of powdered sugar and 1 packet of vanilla sugar.

Soak 1 sheet of gelatine (white) in cold water for 5 minutes, squeeze it out well, heat some whipped cream in a saucepan and dissolve the gelatine in it.

Beat the rest of the whipped cream with a hand mixer and stir together with the gelatine to form the quark mixture.

9. Spread the filling
