Beat the egg whites with very little water to peaks. Stir the yolks with vanilla sugar and sugar creamy. Sift the flour, cornstarch and baking powder over the yolks, cover with the eggwhites and fold carefull to a dough.

Grease a springform pan, cover with baking paper and pour the batter in.

Bake the pie 30-40 minutes. After baking, turn on a wire rack, wet the paper a little and pull it off. Cut horizontally one time. Let cool.

Make a pudding of milk, sugar, grated orange peel and cornstarch and bring it, while constant stirring, to a boil. When it has thickens, let cool. Beat the butter with Cointreau creamy and add spoon by spoon the cooled pudding. Divide 1/3 on the bottom layer and place the top layer.
