2 pounds minced onions (about 7 cups)
Cook onions in a heavy skillet with the oil and butter over very low heat, stirring occasionally until they are extremely tender and a golden yellow, about 1 hour. In meantime, make the crust: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In the food processor with the steel chopping blade in place, whirl the flour, salt, and sugar. Add the butter and the water and process just until it wants to form a ball. Roll out and fit into 8 or 9 inch flan pan. Line it with a piece of foil or parchment, and then layer the foil with dry beans or pie weights. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Remove foil and beans, prick bottom of pastry with a fork to keep it from rising. Return to oven for 3 minutes, or just until it is starting to color. Set aside.
