caramelized onion & apple tart

Happy Friday all! So glad the week is winding down. In addition to my Fuzzy Pom last night, I made a tasty tart. This savory and sweet tart is based off of a Real Simple recipe.
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
2 small onions, sliced
1 large apple (such as Braeburn or Gala), sliced into thin pieces
kosher salt and black pepper 
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from a 17.3-ounce package), thawed
1/3 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 to 2 tablespoons honey for drizzling 
  1. Heat oven to 400ยบ F. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in the apple slices, cider, dash of salt, and grind or two of fresh black pepper and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Place the pastry sheet on a lightly Pammed baking sheet and prick all over with a fork. Spread with the sour cream, leaving a small border. Top with the onion mixture and bake until the pastry is crisp and browned, 30 to 35 minutes. Drizzle honey on top and cut into pieces before serving. 
Served with a salad, this is a great fast dinner. You can cut the tart into smaller squares and it makes a nice a nice hors d'oeuvres too. My tart was made in a small jelly roll pan, but if you use a large cookie sheet you can easily double everything for a crowd. So ready for the weekend, Vance and I are beginning house hunting this weekend!
