Caramelized Onion Tartlets

Slightly adapted from Cooking Light, Dec 2011
Makes 20 appetizers

2 tsp olive oil
2 small red onions, thinly sliced
2 small yellow onions, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed (8.5 oz)
1.5 oz asiago cheese, shredded
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions; sauté 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Cook for 15 minutes; stir occasionally. Add vinegar.

Preheat oven to 400°.

Unfold dough, and place on a work surface lightly dusted with flour. Roll into a 10 x 9-inch rectangle. Cut dough into 20 (2 1/4 x 2-inch) rectangles. Score each rectangle about 1/8-inch from edge. Prick dough pieces liberally with a fork. Arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper; chill 10 minutes.

Sprinkle about 3/4 teaspoon cheese over each tartlet; top with about 1 tablespoon onion mixture. Sprinkle with salt. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until dough is lightly browned.
