Using a whisk, blanch the egg yolks and sugar. Then, add the very soft butter. Sift the flour and yeast into the mixture, add the fleur de sel, and mix with a spatula to obtain a homogeneous dough.
Divide the dough among 8cm rings and store in the freezer for 10 minutes. Then, bake the Breton palets for about 15 minutes at 340°F (170°C). Remove the baking rings 5 minutes after removing them from the oven and allow to cool.
