Creativity runs thick amongst the Campbell women. Especially in the kitchen. One afternoon my sister Laura found herself with left over Onion Marmalade that she had prepared and used as a sandwich topper a few days prior. Also on hand was puff pastry and goat cheese. At that moment, “Laura’s Puff Pastry Surprise!” was created! 🙂
A bit dangerous right out of the oven as they hold their heat, these delicate puff pastry triangles are absolutely delightful!
Onion Marmalade –
4 white onions, thinly sliced
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
salt & pepper, to taste
In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, saute sliced onion in a little olive oil and season with salt & pepper to taste. Cook for 20 minutes, or until soft. Add 1/3 cup sugar and reduce heat to medium-low and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until all the liquid in the pan evaporates. Add balsamic vinegar and cook down until the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat and cool.
Laura’s Puff Pastry Surprise!
Puff Pastry (we prefer Pepperidge Farm)
Onion Marmalade (see above)
Defrost puff pastry. Preheat oven per puff pastry box instructions. Cover pastry with damp cloth to keep moist. Cut pastry into squares. Add a tablespoon or so of Onion Marmalade to middle of puff pastry square.
Add Goat Cheese, to taste, on top of Onion Marmalade. (NOTE: I’d add more cheese than displayed in picture. :))
Dip finger in water and lightly wet two triangular (is that a word??) edges of puff pastry, to seal. Fold into triangle shape.
Bake per puff pastry box instructions.
HOT out of the oven and ready to serve! Be carefully, these little puff pastry pockets are steaming hot when they first come out…
