French Onion and Bacon Tart
Why This Recipe Works
To simplify the crust and shorten the overall preparation time in our French onion and bacon tart recipe, we took a few shortcuts. We found that the onions for our onion tart recipe would cook in half the usual time if we left the lid on the skillet throughout cooking. Another discovery was that using a food processor to cut cold butter completely into the flour mixture required less ice water than a conventional crust, so the dough was firm enough to press into the pan.
