tarte a l'oignon

I was browsing the blogs and came across this recipe and decided to try it. I have never really made pastry dough and my first attempt was a disaster. The crust instructions as given in the recipe is just too much flour for the uber-dry climate of Calgary and the dough completely fell apart. However, I did find an all butter pie dough recipe from William-Sonoma that worked like a charm and was able to make this fabulous tarte a l'oignon. As the recipe says, you can use your favourite pastry recipe or even just purchase a pre-made shell and enjoy making this wonderful treat. I love Smitten Kitchen. Bought my sister the cookbook and really did not want to give it away!

I have to say my pastry turned out super-yummy and the William-Sonoma recipe will become a stand-by for me. Now I am all excited to try a lemon tart!

Happy week peeps!
