1. Make Sour-Cream Pastry: Combine flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. With pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in sour cream. Knead 2 or 3 times, just until dough holds together. Wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

2. Make filling: Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrots, parsnips, green onions and garlic; cook just until vegetables are tender, 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is wilted and tender, 15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. When cool, add remaining filling ingredients, 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

3. Heat oven to 400øF. Divide pastry into 2 pieces, one slightly larger than the other. Between 2 sheets of wax paper, roll larger piece into 12-inch circle. Fit pastry into 10- or 11-inch tart pan. Spread filling over pastry, pressing until compact. Dot with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Roll remaining pastry into 11-inch circle.

4. Cut pastry into ½-inch-wide strips and arrange in lattice pattern over filling; flute edge. Brush egg mixture on lattice and edge of tart. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until pastry is golden. Serve warm. Makes 8 servings.
