Si Bonnes~So Good~
These "tartelettes" are delicious...
I served them for lunch for my daughter and son-in-law..and as an apéro for Jacques last night..:)
It is from here~Her creations are always beautifully executed.
I used my favorite H de P from one of my markets in France..
The onion confit is one of the best I have made~
I think it is because of the raspberry wine vinegar.:)
Store bought or home made puff pastry
Toasted Pine Nuts
Salt and Papper
For the onion confit..
500 g red onions
50 ml raspberry vinegar
2 tbsps EVOO
2 tbsps cane sugar
Salt and pepper
Slice onions into thin strips. Warm EVOO in a sauté pan and soften the onions
Sprinkle sugar, mix and add vinegar. Add salt and pepper and leave to simmer on low to become a compote.. confit... .It should become a deep color..mine stayed quite light..and it was still delicious.
Place in a hermetically sealed jar and keep in fridge..
Cut your puff pastry w/ a cookie/pastry cutter...preferably w/ scaloped edges.. prick w/ fork.. add onion confit..top w/ a nice rondelle of goat cheese..sprinkle with herbs and toasted pine nuts..Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at ap 375-400 until golden ..(About 20 mins)..
You can serve as a meal w/ a salad like I did w/ my daughter..or alone as an apéro..
Simple and flavorful.
