Serves: 36 

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 sweet onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
  • 600g frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 firm pears, peeled, quartered and sliced
  • 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

Preparation:35min  ›  Cook:55min  ›  Ready in:1hour30min 

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Melt the butter and olive oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Stir the onions into the butter and cook until the onions have softened and caramelized to a deep, golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Stir frequently as the onions cook to keep them from burning. Once done, season with salt and pepper and set aside to cool.
  3. Use a sharp knife to cut each sheet of puff pastry into 9 squares. Cut each square in half diagonally to yield 36 triangles. Place the triangles onto the prepared baking trays, and top with the caramelized onions, pears, and 1 teaspoon of blue cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the pastry is puffed and golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.
