Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Tarts
These tarts are the perfect small bite to pair with a glass of wine. The onions/goat cheese/thyme combo would also be delicious on toasted baguette slices.
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 large onion, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme, plus more for garnish
- 1 puff pastry sheet, thawed (from a 17 oz. package frozen puff pastry sheets)
- 1 ounce soft mild goat cheese, at room temperature

Center a rack in the oven and preheat to 450 degrees.
In a heavy skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Saute onion, stirring occasionally, until golden (about 10 minutes).
Add water and deglaze skillet, scraping up any brown bits. Cook until water evaporates and onion is an even deeper brown (about 10 more minutes).
While onion is cooking, cut pastry sheet lengthwise into thirds. Cut each strip into 8 triangles.
Place triangles on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Prick pastry all over with a fork. Bake until golden (about 10 minutes). Slice each pastry in half to create two thinner tart bases.
Spread goat cheese onto pastry triangles. Top with caramelized onions.
Garnish with fresh thyme leaves and serve immediately.
