DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flower and 1/2 tsp of salt into a bowl.
  • Add the butter and with you fingers rub the butter into the flower until absorbed.
  • Add water to form a thick but workable dough.
  • Cover the pastry in cling film and chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  • On a lightly flowered surface roll out the pastry finely and cover a 28 cm flan dish.
  • Prick the base a couple of times with the fork and bake blind in a preheated oven (200 C, 400 F or Gas Mark 6) for about 15-20 minutes.
  • While the pastry is baking heat oil in a frying pan.
  • Fry the onions and shallots on a gentle heat until soft and starting to colour, around 15-20 minutes.
  • Add the sugar and salt to taste and mix well.
  • At this stage you can also mix in herbs if required.
  • Pace the onions into the part-paked pastry case and top with goat's cheese (if you have a hard variety you'll need to cut it into chunks otherwise you can just spoon it on) and black pepper.
  • Beat the egg, yolks, cream and milk together and pour the mixture over the onions and goat's cheese.
  • Bake in a preheated oven (200 C, 400 F or Gas Mark 6) until the filling has set, approximately 25-40 minutes.
