Caramelized Onion Tartlets

These simple appetizers are great for gatherings of family and friends, and are easier to make than they appear and taste amazing! You’re sure to please when these carmelized onion tartlets become a hit at your next gathering. When working with puff pastry, be sure to keep it cold and do not handle it too much as the warmth from your hands will melt the dough. If you have made caramelized onions in the past, do not caramelize them completely for this recipe as they will have additional cooking time in the oven. Fully caramelizing the onions will lead to burned onions in the oven.
Caramelized Onions:
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Tartlets:
  • 1 package puff pastry, frozen
  • 1 cup cream cheese, room temperature
  • salt and pepper as needed
  • 1/8 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
Directions:
To make the caramelized onions, melt the butter with the olive oil in a sauté pan over low heat. Add the onions, and cook on low heat for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally until the onions are golden-colored. Remove and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. To assemble the tartlets, cut the frozen puff pastry into squares approximately 2 inches in width.
Spread a teaspoon of softened cream cheese on each square, sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, and top with a few caramelized onion strands.
Place the tartlets on a baking sheet and bake at 400°F for 10-15 minutes, or until the puff pastry has risen and browned slightly.
Remove from the oven, allow the tartlets to cool briefly, and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
