Guests will think you spent hours preparing these cute appetizers, but they're really easy to assemble, using purchased puff pastry. And the tasty combination of Brie, caramelized onions and caraway is terrific. -Carole Resnick, Cleveland, Ohio

  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 4 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed, softened
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons water


  1. In a large skillet, cook the onions, butter, brown sugar and vinegar over medium-low heat until onions are golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove with a slotted spoon; cool to room temperature.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry into an 11x8-in. rectangle. Cut Brie into thin slices; distribute evenly over pastry. Cover with the onions; sprinkle with caraway seeds.
  3. Roll up 1 long side to the middle of the dough; roll up the other side so the 2 rolls meet in the center. Using a serrated knife, cut into 1/2-in. slices. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets; flatten to 1/4-in. thickness. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk egg and water; brush over slices. Bake until puffed and golden brown, 12-14 minutes. Serve appetizers warm.
