  • 2 cups King Arthur unbleached flour
  • 12 tb chilled Cabot butter, cut into ¼” dice
  • ½ c shredded Cabot Vermont sharp cheddar cheese
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 6 tb cold water
  • 8-10 large yellow onions, thickly sliced (16 cups)
  • 4 tb butter
  • 4 tb olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 6 crisp Vermont apples (Macoun, Baldwin, Granny Smith) peeled, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 6 crisp apples, peeled, ¼” sliced
  • 2 Tbs butter


  • 2 cups grated Cabot Vermont sharp cheddar cheese


In a Cusinart, combine butter, flour, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper. Process, by pulsing, until consistency of coarse cornmeal. Slowly add cold water until a ball forms, remove. Knead lightly until smooth, wrap in saran and chill, about 30 to 60 minutes.

Roll out pastry, on a floured board, to ¼” thick, fit into a 10 inch quiche pan or 8 individual tart pans, prick the bottom and chill again before baking 10-15 minutes in a 425 degree oven until golden brown and crisp.

Meanwhile sauté onions, salt and pepper in oil and butter in a heavy pan over medium heat until well-coated and beginning to wilt. Cover and sauté until very tender and juicy. Uncover. Add thinly sliced apples and cook over high heat until very brown, soft and tasty, about 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Then add heavy cream, continue cooking and stirring until cream is thick enough to coat a spoon.

Sauté the ¼” thick apples in butter until cooked through but not too soft.

Assemble the tart. In the pre-baked pastry shell place a thick layer of creamy onions and apples. Arrange apple slices in concentric circles on top. Cover all with a thick layer of the grated cheese.

You can assemble the tart up to a day ahead of serving. Before serving, heat the tart in 350 oven until the cheese begins to melt and the onions are hot, about 15 minutes in a preheated oven. Just before serving, place the tart under a hot broiler about three minutes or until the top has browned into a delicious crust.

Thanks to the Deerhill Inn for this great recipe!
