1 sweet onion, quartered and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Sweet Onion Tomato Tartlets


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prick tomatoes with a fork or the tip of a sharp knife. In an ungreased 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan, combine tomatoes, onion, oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes or until onion is tender. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with vinegar, cool.

Meanwhile, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. On a lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry. Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut pastry into rounds. Place rounds on the prepared baking sheet.

Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the roasted tomato mixture onto each pastry round. Place onion first, then tomatoes and then top with more onion. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are puffed and golden brown. Let stand on baking sheet for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with cheese.

These Sweet Onion Tomato Tartlets are adorable and taste scrumptious, they’ll be sure to be conversation starters.
