Caramelized Onion & Apple Tart

It’s Friday! Halleujah!

In my book, Friday is a day made for apps, zerts, and a whole lot of wine! These caramelized onion and apple tarts may look fancy, but trust me, anyone can throw these babies together.

Crisp pastry, spread with decadent crème fraîche and topped with soft caramelized apples and onions. Oh, you are in for a treat! Best of all, you only need a couple of ingredients!

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 red apples (I like to use Gala or Braeburn), cut into small piece
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry
  • 1/2 cup crème fraîche
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper

Before you begin to prep your apples and onions, take the puff pastry out of the freezer and package.

Lay the pastry sheets out to thaw for about 40 minutes.

Once your pastry is soft to the touch, preheat your oven to 400º F.

Next, add two table spoons of olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Toss in your onions and stir occasionally, until soft and golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

The mix in your apples, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until just tender, 2 minutes.

Place each sheet of puff pastry on baking pan lined with parchment paper and prick all over with a fork.

But leave a ½-inch border, as if you were topping pizza dough with sauce!

And sprinkle with a bit more cracked pepper if you please.

Pop the tarts into the oven and cook for 30 to 35 minutes. When the crust is crisp and brown, you’ll know they’re done!
