Apple, Onion and Rosemary Tart with Cinnamon Honey

Apple, Onions & Rosemary TartI love a good tart.  Once I managed to get past letting puff pastry intimidate me and realized how simple it is to use, I’ve created quite a few.  This sweet and savory one was created for my client L&M Companies Produce a while back and is featured on their web page here!

Realizing it’s Apple Pie Day, and this is the closest thing to an apple pie in my repertoire, I decided to share this recipe with you too.  It’s basically a flat open faced apple pie I do suppose.

You can enjoy this as an appetizer, as a side dish, and pairs nicely with a salad for lunch. Or as an adventurous and outside-the-box dessert with coffee too.

I hope you will make this tart… and will come over to my facebook community where we’ll chat about this and all sorts of other goodies too.
