Red Onion and Parmesan Tartlets

Recipe Ingredients:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup butter
1 medium egg yolk
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoon butter
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3 medium red onion
2 teaspoons lemon juice
3/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon thyme
4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese – divided use

Cooking Directions:
1 – In a large bowl sift together the flour and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolk and enough water to make a firm dough.
2 – Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 1 or 2 minutes Roll out and use to line four (4 or 5-inch) tartlet tins. Prick the bases with a fork and chill while preparing the filling.
3 – Melt the butter and oil in a medium sized non-stick pan and add the onions and lemon juice. Sauté for 15 minutes until soft and slightly caramelized. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
4 – Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C).
5 – Line each tartlet with parchment paper filled with baking beans. Bake 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the paper and beans and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes to dry out. Remove and cool slightly on a baking sheet.
6 – Increase the oven temperature to 450°F (230°C).
7 – Mix the onions, half the Parmesan, the sour cream and thyme leaves, season with salt and ground black pepper and divide evenly between the tartlet cups. Sprinkle over the remaining Parmesan.
8 – Bake for 5 to 10 minutes until golden. Garnish with thyme leaves and serve warm or cold with a crisp green salad.
Makes 4 servings.

Tips:

* Always have a batch of pastry made in advance and store in the freezer. Defrost overnight in the fridge and use as required in recipes.
* Add a little freshly grated nutmeg to the onion mixture; it tastes great.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Making Chili……….

Serve your chili – The best bowl of chili is even better when you top it with fresh flavors. Sour cream and shredded cheese are classic, but we also love using pungent green onions, spicy pickled jalapenos, herbaceous cilantro, acidic lime, creamy avocado, oyster crackers or crunchy tortilla chips.

Some other classic options include fresh garlic, roasted bell peppers, and sauteed onions. The vegetables will add a noticeable crunch and pop of color to your recipe. Herbs like cilantro or oregano can also enhance the flavor of the dish. Elevate your chili recipe by adding an extra layer of flavor. And with this cold weather we have what would be better than a big bowl of Homemade Chili!

Jill’s Pumpkin Pie

I also have a recipe for Jill’s Pumpkin Pie which also comes from the Wild Idea Buffalo website. To make this Pie you’ll be needing are Flour, Sugar, Salted Butter, Sugar, Eggs, Cider Vinegar, Lemon Juice, Cream, and Ice Cubes. Also included is a recipe for the Pie Filling. You can find this recipe at the Wild Idea Buffalo website where you can also purchase any of the Wild Idea Products. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

Jill’s Pumpkin Pie
Note: For custard style pies I have learned that pre-baking crust partially will give you a nice flaky crust on the bottom. You may also need to cover crust half way through baking pie, to keep from over browning. A little extra effort, but so worth it!
Pie Crust (Makes 2 – 10” deep-dish pie crusts)

Ingredients:

3 – cups flour, plus a bit more for rolling
½ – teaspoon salt
1 – tablespoon sugar
¾ – lb. salted butter, chilled and cut into pieces, plus a little more softened for buttering pan and foil
1 – egg, beaten
1 – teaspoon cider vinegar or lemon juice *I use half of each.
2 – tablespoons cream
1 – ice cube

Preparation:

1 – Pre-heat oven to 450°.
2 – In mixer using pastry blender, mix flour, salt & sugar.
3 – In small dish, beat eggs. Add vinegar and cream and mix well. Add ice cube to mixture to keep cold, and allow ice to melt almost all the way.
4 – Add chilled butter to flour mixture until incorporated.
5 – Slowly drizzle in egg mixture.
6 – Remove dough from mixer with floured hands, shape into ball and cut in half.
7 – Press dough into disk shape with your hands and place dough onto floured parchment. Top dough with additional floured parchment and roll out.
8 – Transfer dough to buttered pie pan carefully. Press lightly into pan, crimp edges and pierce the dough randomly with a fine pronged fork, about 8 times.
9 – Chill the piecrust for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
10 – Lightly butter foil and place buttered side down on top of piecrust, shaping foil in piecrust shape without disturbing edges. Fill foiled crust at least half way up with dried beans, rice or pie weights.
11 – Place in 450° pre-heated oven and bake for 25 minutes.
Remove foiled piecrust from oven and remove foil gently. Return piecrust to oven to allow the bottom to brown, about another 10 minutes.
12 – Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before filling.

Pumpkin Pie Filling
A few extra ingredients for a richer, creamer filling. Enjoy.

Ingredients:

3 – eggs
1¼ – cup dark, pure cane brown sugar, packed
½ – cup sour cream
½ – cup heavy cream
¼ – cup pure maple syrup
1 – teaspoon vanilla
1 – tablespoon cinnamon
1 – teaspoon ginger
1 – teaspoon allspice
4 – cups pureed pumpkin or canned pumpkin
*Yams or butternut squash can be used too.

Preparation:

1 – In mixer, beat eggs. Add remaining ingredients in order with mixer running, stopping to scrape the bottom occasionally. Mix until well incorporated.
2 – Pour pumpkin mixture into prepared piecrust.
3 – Bake at 350° for 75 minutes. Increase heat to 450° and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.
4 – Remove pie from oven and allow to cool for 2 hours before serving.

Add sour cream for extra-smooth scrambled eggs………………….

 

Sour cream will keep them soft and, well, creamy for a long time while you’re holding them warm for a big brunch. Add about 1/4 cup per dozen eggs once you’ve removed the eggs from the heat.
