MAKES 6 TO 8 SERVINGS
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 2 large onions, thinly sliced 5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 2 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 large onions, thinly sliced
5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
21/2 to 3 pounds cherry tomatoes
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon coarse salt 1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces 1 cup grated Gruyere cheese
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup grated Gruyere cheese
1/2 cups heavy cream, plus more for brushing
Make filling: Heat oil in 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, tomatoes, flour and red-pepper flakes with 11/2 teaspoons salt and some pepper.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Make biscuit topping: Whisk together flour, baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or rub in with your fingers until small clumps form. Stir in 1 cup cheese, then add cream, stirring with fork to combine until dough forms. (Dough will be sticky.)
Transfer tomato mixture to a (2-quart) baking dish (2 inches deep). Spoon 7 clumps of biscuit dough (about 1/2 cup each) over top in a circle, leaving center open. Brush dough with cream, and sprinkle with remaining tablespoon cheese. Bake until tomatoes are bubbling in center and biscuits are golden brown, about 50 to 60 minutes. Transfer to wire rack. Let cool for 20 minutes.
