Tom's Caramelized Onion Blackberry Tartlets

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cream Cheese Dough
  2. Combine the flour and salt in a food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade and pulse to combine. Add the butter and cream cheese and pulse about 10 times, until the mixture begins to clump together. Gather up the dough and shape into a thick disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled and easy to handle, about 2 hours.
  3. Baking the dough
  4. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Position oven rack in the center of the oven.
  5. Butter two 12-cup miniature muffin pans. Divide the dough into 24 balls. One at a time, place a ball of dough in a muffin cup, and use your fingers to press it firmly and evenly up the sides to make a pastry shell. Pierce the shells with a fork. Freeze for 5 minutes.
  6. Place in oven and bake until the shells are golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool in the pans for 5 minutes. Carefully remove from the pans and cool completely.
  7. Maple-Glazed Bacon
  8. Keep the oven at 400°F.
  9. Arrange the bacon in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake until the bacon is crisp and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Carefully pour off the fat from the baking sheet. Brush half of the maple syrup over the bacon strips. Return to the oven and bake until glazed, about 2 1/2 minutes. Remove from the oven and flip the bacon over. Brush the other sides with the remaining syrup and grind the pepper on top to taste. Bake again until glazed, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer the bacon to a chopping board and let cool slightly. Cut each strip of bacon crosswise into sixths to make 24 equal pieces and let cool.
  10. Caramelized Onions
  11. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add vinegar and cook, stirring occasionally, until very tender and golden brown, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  12. To Serve
  13. Spoon warm onions into tart shells.Top each with 2 or 3 blackberry pieces, and stand the bacon between the berries. Sprinkle with the sage and serve.
