      Made this as an appetizer for our Dinner Club's German Night - it was a huge hit. Made about 20-24 appetizer size pieces. I made it in a 10" springform pan and used 3 different kinds of onion (2.5 c cooking, 1 c red, .25 c green), totalling about 3.5-4 cups. When I make it again I will only make about .75 of the dough recipe as I found it a bit thick. This dough would also be excellent as a base for strawberry shortcake although I wouldn't add the additional salt.
