  • Yield: 48 Servings
  • Cost Per Serving:$.38

Ingredients

  • 1 stick (1/4 lb.) unsalted butter
  • 2 large Vidalia or regular
  • onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk

Preparation

Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large, heavy skillet over low heat. Add onions, 1/2 tsp. salt and thyme; cook until tender and lightly browned, 30 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Place one rack in upper third of oven and another in lower third; preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.

Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and remaining 1/2 tsp. salt in a bowl. Cut remaining 6 Tbsp. butter into small chunks and add to flour mixture. Cut in butter using your fingers, 2 knives or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in milk with a fork just until flour is evenly moistened.

Turn out dough onto a floured surface and pull together into one piece with floured hands. Divide dough into 48 mounds (about 1/2 Tbsp. each); roll each into a ball and place on baking sheets. With a teaspoon measuring spoon, press an indentation into center of each ball. Spoon onion mixture into indentations.

Bake, rotating pans halfway through, until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.
