These tarts are as elegant as they are delicious. Caramelized onions combine with tangy blue cheese and sweet fig jam to deliver a palete pleasing flavor your friends and family will love!
If you're obsessed with that tangy blue cheese flavor like I am, reserve a couple tablespoons to top the tarts after they've baked. This burst of fresh blue cheese is really going to amp up the flavor and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
Puff pastry is the best dough for this recipe. Crescent rolls or even pie crust can be used as substitutes, but puff pastry is going to give you the best result for this recipe.
When you're caramelizing the onions, don't worry if the bottom of the pan gets lots of dark brown bits stuck to the bottom. At the end of the 60 minutes, you'll be deglazing the pan with white wine and scraping all those yummy bits off the bottom.
Puff pastry is pretty forgiving, but it needs to be kept cold in order to rise properly when baked. So you definitely don't want to let these babies sit out on your counter for too long or get anywhere near room temp before you bake them. Work quickly for best results!
