Tart Filling
Pie Crust
  1. I strongly encourage you to make your own pie dough but if you are unable to, please refer to notes below.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add in your flour, sugar, salt and pulse for a few seconds to combine.
  3. Next, add in your cubed butter one slice at a time. Pulse, release then add another.
  4. Add in your cheese and thyme.
  5. Next add in one tablespoon of water at a time until a crumbly but cohesive dough forms. Usually 6-7 tablespoons.
  6. On a sheet of wax or parchment paper, dump your dough mixture out. Press using the sides of the paper to create a disc. The dough should come together, wrap and place in fridge for at least an hour but can be made ahead and pulled out the next day.
Tart Assembly
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Remove your dough from the fridge and on a floured surface begin rolling out into about a 9×12 rectangle (rustic is fine).
  3. In a quarter sheet pan (you can use a half sheet pan if you don’t have a 9×12, just section to one side of the pan). Spray or butter and then place a piece of parchment paper.
  4. Lay your pie dough on the parchment, you can press the edges up slightly to create a small raised crust.
  5. Mix together your labneh, toum and salt. Spread an even thin layer on the crust. Next, sprinkle your Parmesan cheese.
  6. Slice your onions about 1/4″ thick, I actually like cutting them with the skin on then peel off for each ring. Finally, place your sliced onion rings on top to cover most of the tart. I like to use a variety of different sizes.
  7. Dot your onions with some small pieces of butter and bake for 25 minutes until golden brown. You can broil the top for a few seconds at the end for a little more char on your onions if you’d like.
  8. Remove from oven and sprinkle with flake sea salt and additional thyme. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
Recipe Notes

*Store bought pie crust can be used, I’d encourage adding the cheese and fresh herbs to get that ultra flaky/crispy crust
