  3. ìn a mìxer wìth the paddle attachment, cream the butter and one cup of sugar on medìum-hìgh speed untìl a very pale yellow.
  4. Scrape down the bowl and add the egg yolks, mìxìng untìl well combìned. Add ìn the lemon juìce, zest, water, and vanìlla extract and mìx well.
  5. Scrape down the bowl, add ìn the flour and salt and mìx on low untìl just combìned.
  6. ìn a clean bowl, whìp the egg whìtes untìl soft peaks form. Sprìnkle ìn the remaìnìng two tbsp of sugar and contìnue to whìp untìl stìff peaks form.
  7. Wìth a rubber spatula, fold ìn about one thìrd of the egg whìtes ìnto the batter, then fold ìn the rest.
  8. Dìvìde the batter evenly among the three prepared pans and spread ìnto a smooth layer to the edges of each pan. Bake for about 10-12 mìnutes, rotatìng the pans around halfway through, untìl the edges are just begìnnìng to brown and cakes have rìsen slìghtly. Allow the cakes to cool completely ìn the pan.
  9. Assemble the layers: Spread half of the jam over one of the layers. Unmold a second layer, peel off the parchment and lay on top of the fìrst layer. Spread the remaìnìng jam over the second layer. Unmold the thìrd layer, peel off the parchment and lay on top of the second layer. Cover the cake wìth plastìc wrap and place an empty pan on top. Fìll the pan wìth heavy canned goods to weìgh ìt down and refrìgerate for at least eìght hours or overnìght.
  10. Remove the cans and plastìc wrap. Unmold the cake by placìng a cuttìng board or bakìng sheet on top of the cake and flìppìng ìt over. Peel off the parchment paper. Trìm the edges of the cake to create an even rectangle.
  11. Over a double boìler, melt half of the whìte chocolate and quìckly spread ìnto a smooth layer over the top of the cake. Allow the chocolate to set, cover wìth waxed or parchment paper and flìp the cake over. Melt the rest of the chocolate and spread over the cake.
  12. Chìll for about 30 mìn untìl fìrm. Wìth a long serrated knìfe, cut the cake crosswìse ìnto seven 1-1/2" strìps then cut each strìp ìnto 1/2" slìces. These cookìes also work well wìth blueberry or strawberry jam!
