For the onions:
Medium yellow onions

Combine the ingredients listed above, form a dough, let it chill into the fridge for about 1 or 2 hours.
Prepare the caramelized onions (video recipe
Heat a couple of tablespoons of EVO oil into a stainless steel skillet. Add sliced onions, a pinch of salt and stir just to mix the salt.
Let them cook WITHOUT stirring until they brown on the bottom. Then stir again.
Continue cooking until evenly browned and caramelised (
please watch this video
, Helen explains it so well).
To make the pies:
Preheat your oven to 390F (200C).
Roll dough onto a floured surface to 0.15 inch thickness. Then cut circles using a cutter.
You may have to re-roll out the dough a second time.
Fill with a piece of prosciutto and about a teaspoon of onions (make sure to leave a little bit of space at the edges).
Seal each of them, by pinching the edges.
Brush some egg wash and sprinkle some seeds on top.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
These can also be eaten when cooled down;)
If not consuming immediately, store into an airtight container, in the fridge. When you want to eat them, warm them with microwave or oven.
