Ingredients for Mini goats cheese tartlets

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 red onions, halved, thinly sliced
  • 65g (1/2 cup) craisins (dried cranberries)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 45g (1/4 cup, lightly packed) brown sugar
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) water
  • 1 sheet (25 x 25cm) frozen ready-rolled puff pastry, just thawed
  • 100g goats cheese, crumbled

Mini goats cheese tartlets, How to Make

  • Step 1
    Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until golden.
  • Step 2
    Meanwhile, combine the cranberries and vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside for 15 minutes to soak.
  • Step 3
    Add the cranberry mixture, sugar and water to the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until the mixture thickens. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside for 1 hour to cool.
  • Step 4
    Preheat oven to 200°C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Use a 6cm-diameter round pastry cutter to cut 16 discs from the pastry. Place the pastry discs on the lined baking trays. Use a 4cm-diameter round pastry cutter to make a 1cm-wide border around the edge of each pastry disc (do not cut all the way through). Use a fork to prick the centre of each pastry disc all over.
  • Step 5
    Keeping within the border, spread 1/2 teaspoon of onion mixture over each pastry disc. Top with goats cheese, pecans and thyme. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Serve.

Notes:
Time plan tip: Prepare to the end of step 3 up to 1 day ahead. Store the onion mixture in an airtight container in fridge. Continue to the end of step 4 up to 2 hours ahead. Cover and store in fridge. Continue from step 5, 20 minutes ahead.
