There’s quite like greeting your guests with a warm hors d’oeuvre, especially around the holidays. I love this one because it utilizes store-bought puff pastry and can be made in advance. All you have to do is keep refrigerated, heat and serve! Or you could freeze them a week before, right in the tin, and make it even easier!

These are seriously addicting, and are always the first things to go at any party. They also go great with a glass of chilled champagne! Happy Thanksgiving!
- 4 oz (113 g) of crumbled goat cheese
- 2 sheets puffed pastry
- 2 tbsp ( 30 ml) olive oil
- 1 sweet yellow onion
- 1 red onion
- 2 tsp (10 ml) balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) honey
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) freshly chopped rosemary
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. (205 degrees C)
- Slice onions paper thin. Saute in olive oil until soft and caramelized. Add vinegar and cook until evaporated. Add honey, salt, pepper and rosemary.
- Cut out circles of puff pastry with a cookie cutter. One that is at least 3 inches wide. Set circles into mini muffin tin, creating little tartelettes.
- Sprinkle ½ tsp of crumbled goat cheese into tarts, and top with onion mixture.
- At this point you can cover in foil and freeze if not using right away, or pop in fridge until the day of your party.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes until pastry is golden brown and cheese is melted.
- Allow to cool slightly before serving.
