Caramelized Onion Apple Mini Tarts

This month the Groovy Gourmets decided to make some delicious canapés. Canapes are small, single-bite food, that is traditionally made with a base of a small piece of bread with some sort of topping like cheese, vegetables or meat.

The base of the canapé could be anything from bread, crackers to pastry. They make a great appetizer for parties.

I was introduced to canapés not very long back by my aunt. I loved them to the core. I have posted a canapé some time back. You can check it here.

Today’s recipe has onions, apples and cheese. The original recipe called for fontina cheese. As I couldn’t find it I replaced with Cheddar. I loved the sweet, tangy and sharp taste of the three ingredients along with the crisp pastry. Do give them a try, I’m sure you will like them.

Makes – 16 pieces
What you’ll need
  1. Yellow Onion – 2 medium sized
  2. Green Apple – 1 big (I used Golden Delicious)

  4. Cheddar cheese – 2 Slices cut into small pieces
  5. Black Pepper Powder – ¼ tsp (adjust according to taste)
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Puff Pastry Sheets – 4, Square sheets

  1. Chop the onions and apples into small dices. Try to keep both of the same size.
  2. Heat a Kadai with the butter, add the onions and fry till they turn soft.
  3. Add the chopped apples and salt to taste.
  4. Fry on low to medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Add the pepper powder mix well and cool slightly.
  6. Pre heat the oven to 200C
  7. Thaw the frozen pastry sheets and cut them into small squares. Feel free to cut them into whatever shapes you like. Some options are small triangles or even circles.
  8. Arrange them on a lined baking tray.
  9. Place a spoonful of the apple onion mixture and top with few pieces of cheese.
  10. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
