  • 4 to 6

    tablespoons ice water, as needed

  • Filling

  • 1

    tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 1

    tablespoon canola oil

  • 2

    large onions, halved and thinly sliced

  • 1

    tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme

  • 3

    large eggs

  • 3

    tablespoons cream cheese, at room

  • temperature

  • 1

    cup heavy cream

  • 1

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 6

    ounces fresh goat cheese, cut into small pieces

Directions

1. To make the tart dough, combine the flour and salt in a food processor and pulse a few times to combine. Scatter the butter over the flour and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal, 6 to 8 pulses. 2. With the machine running, add 1/4 cup ice water in a slow, steady stream through the feed tube. Pulse until the dough holds together without being wet or sticky. To test, squeeze a small amount together: If it holds together, it is ready. If it is crumbly, add up to 2 tablespoons more ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, Form the dough into a flat disk, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours. 3. Roll out the dough to a 12-inch round on a floured surface. Transfer to a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Trim the dough overhang to 1 inch. Fold the overhang in and press it to the sides, forming a double-thick high-standing side. Pierce the crust all over with a fork. Freeze the crust for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 month. 4. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400°F. 5. Bake the crust on a baking sheet, piercing with a fork if the crust bubbles up in spots, until light golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, keeping the crust on the baking sheet. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F. 6. To make the filling, melt the butter with the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Stir in the onions and thyme and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and caramelized, about 45 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. 7. Whisk together the eggs and cream cheese in a medium bowl until smooth; then whisk in the cream, salt, and pepper. 8. Arrange the onions evenly over the bottom of the tart shell. Pour the egg mixture over the onions and scatter the goat cheese over the top. Bake until the sides of the filling are slightly puffed and the center still jiggles slightly, about 40 minutes. Remove the tart from the oven and let cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. 9. Slice the tart, top each wedge with some pesto, and serve with the herb salad. Serves 8 1 cup dry red wine, preferably Pinot Noir 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 1 tablespoon honey Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 ounces mesclun greens 1/4 cup fresh chervil leaves 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh tarragon 1. Bring the wine to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and cook until thickened and reduced to 3 tablespoons, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. 2. Combine the reduced wine, vinegar, and honey in a blender and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. With the motor running, slowly add the oil and blend until emulsified. The vinaigrette can be made 1 day in advance and refrigerated. Bring to room temperature before serving. 3. Combine the greens, chervil, parsley, and tarragon in a large bowl, drizzle with the vinaigrette, and toss to combine.
