Breakfast Pastry

Posted on

For Mother’s Day I made breakfast for my mom to celebrate all the good things she has done for me! She enjoys most of the good food I do and when I saw a tart pastry recipe in a Food and Wine Magazine, I knew it was the ticket to Sunday morning’s breakfast. It ended up being fantastic and my mom loved it! Well, at least that’s what she said. Mom, if you are reading this, feel free to comment. Remember, I am your favorite daughter, well your only daughter.

Ingredients for Dough:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 Tbsp cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 Tbsp ice-cold water
  • 1 egg whisked with 2 Tbsp water


  1. In large bowl, cut cold butter into flour and salt with two knives. Create a coarse meal.
  2. Add ice-cold water 1 Tbsp at a time making dough – you might have to use your hands.
  3. Form ball with dough and cover in plastic wrap.
  4. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  5. Roll out dough in circular shape on floured surface until very thin.
  6. Fold edges up and over creating crust.
  7. Brush crust with egg wash.

  1. I love the simple pastry recipe! It is so versatile. What you did with it is great:]

  2. Yes, it was delicious….but don’t forget you put alittle shredded parmesan cheese in there too. I had it for breadfast & lunch the next day, warmed up in the toaster oven. The onions became more carmelized. No microwave, it changes the properties of the food!!!
