Onion Tartlets

Recipe By : Recipes Only Nov/Dec 1986
Serving Size : 24 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Volume 15-04 Apr 2012

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
8 medium leeks -- white part only
4 onions
2 tablespoons butter
8 spinach leaves -- finely chopped
6 tablespoons finely chopped chives
2/3 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper -- or to taste
4 tablespoons pine nuts
24 small tart shells -- baked

Clean leeks and chop finely. Chop onions. Melt butter in a saucepan and add
leeks and onions. Simmer very gently on low heat with lid on for 15 to 20
minutes. Add chopped spinach, chives, the cayenne and 8 tablespoons of the
cream. Simmer, uncovered, to reduce in volume. Check for seasoning. Add the
pine nuts and fill the tart shells with this warm filling.

Whip the remaining cream and top each tart with a dab of whipped cream.
Slip the tarts under the broiler for a minute being careful not to scorch

Alternative directions for cooking the filling in the microwave:
Combine the chopped leeks, onions and butter in a large Pyrex container.
Cover with plastic wrap and cook on High for 10 to 15 minutes. Add spinach,
chives, 4 tablespoons of cream and the cayenne. Cover and cook on Med/High
for 5 minutes. Proceed with regular recipe.
Hallie's comment: this recipe is from 1986 and microwave ovens tend to be
much higher in power these days so you may wish to adjust the cooking time
and power level to suit the microwave you are using.

Makes two dozen 1 1/2-inch tarts.

"These delicious appetizers can be made ahead and slipped under the broiler
at the last minute."

The tart shells used in this recipe were a pate brisee recipe but I don't
see why you can't use regular unsweetened tart shells either from your
favourite pastry recipe or even store bought. They were baked at 350F for 8
to 10 minutes or until golden.
