Savory butternut-cream cheese tart


Author Notes: You can use your preferred pie dough for this recipe but I used cream cheese in this one. You can also use other type of squashes, such as Red kuriMarieGlobetrotter

Serves: 8-10

Ingredients

  • 200 grams flour
  • 125 grams cream cheese
  • 50 grams ricotta
  • 110 grams unsalted butter, slightly softened
  • 4 small eggs
  • 700 grams butternut squash
  • 2 yellow onions, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 80 grams Gruyere

Directions

  1. For the dough: Using an electrical mixer, stir together flour, ½ tsp salt, 100g cream cheese, 100g butter and one egg. Cover dough with plastic wrap and set in the fridge for an hour.
  2. Cut the squash into slices. In large pan, heat 1 tsbp of the olive oil and cook the onion until soft. Add the rest of the oil and cook the squash for about then minutes. You can also bake the squash in the oven. Season with salt and pepper
  3. Grease a round tart/quiche pan with the rest of the butter. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and line your tart pan. Spread out the squash on the dough.
  4. Preheat oven to 400F
  5. Whisk together the remaining cream cheese, the ricotta, thyme leaves and the remaining three eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the squash and sprinkle with Gruyere.
