Very easily prepared, and very tasty! Next time, I would make a larger quantity of smaller galettes, more like bite-size nibbles. I added a little sugar to the onions, and used fresh thyme from the garden. A very easily prepared and impressive little tart, I would happily recommend these. Made in loving memory of Pammy.
