  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 onions, roughly chopped
  • Salt
  • 8 ounces goat cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (1/2 a 17.3 ounce box), defrosted
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme


  1. 1

    Place olive oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 35 minutes. Season with salt. Let come to room temperature.

  2. 2

    While onions are cooling, place goat cheese in a small bowl. Add black pepper and stir goat cheese until soft and easily spreadable.

  3. 3

    Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Place puff pastry on baking sheet. Spread goat cheese over tart, leaving a 1/2 inch border on all sides. Top tart evenly with onions and sprinkle with thyme. Bake until crust is golden, about 25-30 minutes.

  5. 5

    Let tart cool for 15 minutes. Cut into approximately 2 by 3 inch rectangles. Serve warm or at room temperature.
