Well, not really. But I can't believe that I told you I was going to blog the best recipe in the world, and then I didn't, and you weren't even sad! IT'S THE BEST RECIPE IN THE WORLD!
Well, until the next recipe that I think is the best recipe in the world. But for now, this one dominates.
It's Tomato Cobbler, and it's just as good as it sounds. I got it from this blog. As a result of this recipe, I am now completely addicted to thyme.
3 TBS extra virgin olive oil (And if you call it EVOO I will poke you with something)
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 pounds tomatoes - I used these awesome Savoura tomatoes that are about half the size of a normal tomato - they were incredible!
1 tsp. coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon fresh thyme (plus more for garnish)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup heavy cream or buttermilk
Make the filling: Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a large high-sided skillet over medium heat. Cook onions, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 25 minutes. Add garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Let cool. Toss onion mixture, whole tomatoes and red-pepper flakes with 1 teaspoon salt and some pepper. I also threw in fresh thyme here.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, thyme and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or rub in with your fingers until small clumps form. Add cream or buttermilk, stirring with a fork to combine until dough forms. (Dough will be slightly sticky.) I think I will try buttermilk next time - I used cream and the biscuits weren't as fluffy as I like, but they were delicious.
Transfer tomato mixture to a 1 or 2 quart baking dish - I think mine is 1.5ish. Spoon 5 clumps of biscuit dough over top in a circle, leaving center open. Brush dough with cream. Bake until tomatoes are bubbling in the center and biscuits are golden brown, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack. Let cool for 20 minutes. Enjoy the following view - it won't last long.
So since I excelled at domesticity on that front, I think I'll refrain from any guilt about not dusting or ironing or doing any of that boring stuff. Why do it in real life when you can just stamp it?
