  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 4 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves, plus more for serving
  • All-purpose flour, for surface
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry (from a 17.3-oz. package), thawed in refrigerator
  • 1 large egg, beaten to blend
  • 4 oz. goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tsp. honey
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil and butter. Add onions, 2 teaspoons salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until very onions are very caramelized, about 35 minutes. Stir in vinegar and thyme. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Arrange racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 375°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, cut each puff pastry sheet into 9 (3"-by-3") squares. Transfer squares to prepared sheets. Top each with about 1 tablespoon onions, leaving a ½" border on all sides. Brush exposed edges with egg. Divide goat cheese among squares.
  4. Bake tarts, rotating sheets front to back halfway through, until puffed and golden brown, 25 to 28 minutes. Drizzle a little honey on each tart. Top with more thyme and pepper. Serve immediately or at room temperature.
