Onion Shortcake

Kelly Lollman


I made this for Thanksgiving many years ago and misplaced the recipe. I've just found it and am posting so that I can't lose it again!!
This is a rich dish, but oh, so yummy! I will be making it soon, no need to wait for a holiday.
The original recipe called for 1/4 cup minced fresh dill, which was a little overpowering to me. I've reduced the measurement by half for dried dill.
