This pie is simple to prepare. Serve with a salad for dinner, or with fruit for brunch. Dry goat cheese can be used in place of feta cheese.
A lovely cheese and onion pie done with a hot water crust pastry, which is made with milk instead of water. Tip: Use the pastry while still warm, it's easy to roll out.
The secret is in the pastry! If lard is not your style then it can be substituted with butter or margarine. It is simple & delicious!
I use a shop-bought shortcrust pastry sheet to save some time. The hardest part of this recipe is peeling and cutting the onions! Just get a tissue to wipe away your tears... it's worth it! This tart is very nice served cold and ideal for a picnic.
My family is so fond of this pie that I always make two - one to eat right away, and a second one for freezing.
