Regardless of all that the tart was wonderful, and made again in short order. The recipe is kind of a cheat because I used premade dough, but that’s what makes it a keeper; it’s so easy, and a little different from the usual tiny bites that we all normal serve for picnics and parties. It is also very reminiscent of fall, with apples as one of the main ingredients how could it not be? You can find the original recipe here, and for once I did not really stray from it too much, but with only 4 ingredients its no wonder.
Caramelized Onion and Apple Tart
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil1 medium red onion, sliced thin
1 medium apple, sliced thin
Salt & pepper
1 sheet pre-packaged puff pastry (Or croissant roll)
¼ cup crème fraiche or sour cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small pan, sauté onions over medium high heat until they begin to caramelize (about 15 minutes) add apple, salt and pepper to the pan and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside. Place pastry on a parchment lined baking sheet and sread crème fraiche leaving about ½ an inch around the outside. Arrange the onions and apples on top of the pastry and place in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the pastry has become golden brown. Remove from heat and cut into pieces to serve.
