CARAMELISED ONION, BRIE AND PEAR TART
Recipe via Foodie Ling
- 1 sheet puff pastry thawed
- 2 brown or red onions thinly sliced
- 140g Paris Creek Farms Bio-Dynamic Triple Cream Brie
- 1 egg beaten
- 1/2 pear thinly sliced
- 1/2 tsp cracked pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Heat olive oil in a pan and sauté the sliced onions on low heat. Stir occasionally until caramelised to a nice brown colour.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C
- Use this time while the onions are cooking to slice the pear and brie cheese. 140g of Paris Creek Farms Bio-Dynamic Triple Cream Brie is half a wheel. To give you an idea I cut that into 12 slices.
- Use a bowl to make a light indentation marking a circle in the middle. Trim the outer part of the pastry sheet to round it, that will make the wreath easier to form.
- Cut the middle circle into 6 triangle segments (see picture).
- Spread the caramelised onion evenly on the outer ring then arrange the pear slices followed by the brie slices evenly.
- Pull one point of the middle ring triangle tip and gently pull it over the toppings and bring the outer edge of the pastry inwards until they meet.
- Press both ends of pastry together. Repeat around the circle. When done roll the rest of the outer edges in so the cheese doesn’t melt out when baking.
- Brush the pastry with the beaten egg and bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and let it set for 5 minutes before serving. You can even drizzle a bit of honey to add flavour. For more of a savoury snack serve with hot tomato sauce.
