Caramelized Onion, Brie and Rosemary Fig Tart

August 16, 2019
I am a huge fan of Puff Pastry. When I have time I make my own, but the store bought products are quite good. There are so many ways to use delicious Puff Pastry,  savory or sweet! This particular Tart is the perfect cheese and fruit course, combining  Lucious Brie, Caramelized Onion and Fresh Figs all scented with Rosemary. Make these in individual sizes for a first course or light lunch, or make a larger size to cut into portions.

In addition to food and everything to do with cooking, I love decorating and gardening. I look for inspiration around me and to be inspired by something beautiful and make it my own makes me happy.


  1. That sounds absolutely delicious. I love anything that uses caramelized onions-and I use them when I make baked French onion soup, too. xo Diana
