Rustic Wild Mushroom , Caramalised Onion Butternut Squash and Goats Cheese Tart
Its definitely autumn there is a real chill in the air and for once I spent Sunday inside clearing out cupboards. Stunningly I have begun Christmas shopping (- thank-you Ebay ) not yet the Christmas cooking though. I never manage to shop this early but there can be no last minute gift buying this year because we are heading for rural Wales . Living in a small flat I have discovered I have nowhere to stash gifts til Xmas so I need a big clear out tonnes of paperwork hit the recycling

To calm me halfway through made the above tart to provide lunches for a week working at home and to use up the wilds mushrooms and a pile of onions from the vegebox.

The combinations of mushrooms and squash if certainly one I have tried before with Butternut Squash studded with mushrooms , stilton bacon walnuts and herbs or leek , garlic wanuts fennel and goats cheese and in Hedgehog Fungus and Squash Risotto

Although for tarts I have often used ready made puff pastry this tart was made using short crust pastry and mine is always the shortest crumbliest the good thing abotu this is the rustic look works
