 Ingredients List

  • -----------------------------------CRUST-----------------------------------
  • 2 c Flour
  • 1/2 lb Unsalted butter
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 3 tb Ice water.


3 lb Yellow Onions, thinly sliced
2 tb Unsalted butter
1 c Oil cured black olived,
Halved and pitted
12 Anchovy fillets
Salt and pepper (fresh
Ground) to taste.

Crust: cut the butter into the flour, and work with your fingers until it
looks like corn meal (note if you have a warm kitchen, it will make a
smooth dough. Do not a dd more flour). Add the salt, and mix. Beat the
egg yolk into the ice water, and add to a well in the center of the flour.
Work with the heel of your hand un til smooth. Shapte into a ball, wrap in
plastic, and place in teh refrigerator for one hour.

Filling: Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and add teh
onions. Stir continually until soft and lightly browned (about 15 minutes),
keeping the heat low so they don't burn. Remove from heat, and season with
salt and pepper to taste.

Remove the dough from the fridge, and roll out to make a thick (1/4")
crust. Place the Anchovy fillets in a star shaped pattern along the
bottom, then cover with 1/2 the olives. Add 1/2 the onions, followed by
the rest of the olives, and then the rest of the onions. The pie is open
on top, so don't cover.

Place in a 375 degree oven, and bake for 40 minutes to an hour, until the
crust is lightly browned, and the onions are brown.

From the Sunday NYT.

Notes: I don't know what this tastes like, since it got eaten before I got
through the line.

The Chef's Comments: "I took this to the departmental christmas party on
friday, and there were no leftovers (much to my surprise), so here it is."
