Using electric mixer, beat butter and salt in a medium bowl until creamy. Add egg yolks and egg; beat to blend. Add flour and sugar; meat until moist clumps form. Gather dough into ball, flatten into disk, and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 2 hours.

It is good. And what's better is saying rhubarb like "whoo bob".

Whoo bob, whoo bob, whoo bob.
