DIRECTIONS

  • In medium skillet, saute the onions in butter over low heat until they just begin to brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Season with 1/4 tsp of the salt, the marjoram and the pepper.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • In a food processor bowl place flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and the remaining salt; mix.
  • Add the shortening and process just until it is the texture of soft crumbs.
  • Add the milk and mix quickly to form a soft dough.
  • Oil a 10 inch round cake pan and lightly use your fingers to spread the dough out evenly.
  • Spread the cooked onion over the top.
  • Beat the egg and sour cream together.
  • Spoon the mixture over the onion, and spread it out to the very edge of the pan.
  • Sprinkle lightly with poppy seeds and paprika.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly, then cut into wedges.
