This is an easy recipe for Caramelised Onion and Cheese mini tartlets. Mine and Tom’s favourite is to make these with Goats cheese, Gruyere would also be a good alternative. It is a great recipe for party Canapes, starters or a light lunch if served with salad.  This batch was made for some friends at a Knit Natter get together and they all loved them. Serve topped with a sprinkling of toasted pine nuts if you like them.

This recipe uses a roll of ready made from the fridge all butter puff pastry. To make it a little bit special you add some chopped herbs to the pastry. One of the big things you notice in Germany is that most of the cheese is sold in pre sliced packs. This is due to custom for most people to have bread and cheese for either their breakfast or evening meal.The pre sliced cheese is perfect for this recipe as it enables you to get cute little rounds for the top of the tartlets. If you can only find a block of cheese simply grate the cheese finely and sprinkle some in the top and bottom of the tartlets. I bake the tartlets in a mince pie/bun tin.

If you can save 2 tablespoons of the caramelised onions they are a great addition to my Italian tapas scotch eggs.
