Bake a few tarts for a dinner-party appetizer or a book club snack—or make one for a light meal served alongside a kale or mixed green salad. You'll start by cooking sliced onions over the stovetop, then stirring in chopped-up apples. That mixture then gets spread over puff pastry and crème fraîche, then baked for roughly half an hour. If you can't find crème fraîche, you can sub sour cream or mascarpone. Use a pizza cutter to cut the tart into small pieces and serve. Ingredients 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 medium onions, sliced 2 red apples (such as Braeburn or Gala), cut into small pieces kosher salt and black pepper 2 sheets frozen puff pastry (from a 17.3-ounce package), thawed ½ cup creme fraiche or sour cream Directions Heat oven to 400º 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 apples, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until just tender, 2 minutes. Place each sheet of pastry on a parchment-lined baking sheet and prick all over with a fork. Spread with the crème fraîche, leaving a ½-inch border. Top with the onion mixture and bake until the pastry is crisp and browned, 30 to 35 minutes. Cut into pieces before serving.
