Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C).4. Remove the pâte brisée from the refrigerator and when warm enough to be pliable, roll out to about 1/8 inch thick. Form the brisée into 2- to 4-inch tart molds. Bake the shells for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly golden. Let cool.5. In a saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter. When bubbly, add the onions. Cook down for 45 minutes, or until the onions are very brown and sweet, stirring from time to time to prevent the onions from sticking. Let cool.6. In a stainless steel bowl, combine the heavy cream, crème fraîche, egg, yolk, and cheese to make a custard. Stir in the salt and pepper and set aside.

Food Joke

At a nursing home a group of seniors were sitting around talking about all their ailments. "My arms have gotten so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee," said one. "Yes, I know," said another. "My cataracts are so bad I can't even see my coffee." "I couldn't even mark an 'X' at election time, my hands are so crippled," volunteered a third. "What? Speak up! What? I can't hear you! said a fourth. "I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck," said a fifth, to which several nodded weakly in agreement. "My blood pressure pills make me so dizzy I can hardly walk!" exclaimed another. "I forget where I am, and where I'm going," said an elderly gent. "I guess that's the price we pay for getting old," winced an old man as he slowly shook his head. The others nodded in agreement. "Well, count your blessings," said one woman cheerfully, "thankfully, we can all still drive."
