Caramelised onion and goat's cheese tartlets

Pick n Pay | 29 January, 2013 01:01


Melt the butter and oil in a heavy-based pan over a medium heat.

Add the onions, thyme (leaves only) and sugar and cook slowly for about 10-15 minutes, or until the onions are soft and sticky.

Season with salt and set aside.

Roll out the pastry and cut as many star shapes as you can.

Press a smaller round cookie cutter into each star, without cutting all the way through the pastry, to create a border.

Spoon a little of the caramelised onion into the centre of each round.

Top with a goat's cheese round.

Chill for about 15 minutes to allow the pastry to firm up.

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until puffed and golden.

Serve immediately.
