Recipe by justcallmetoni
READY IN: 55mins




  • Under medium to low heat, place olive oil and onions in a skillet and cook for 3 or 4 minutes so that onions begin to soften but not brown.
  • Add 1/3 cup of chicken broth to the onions and continue to cook until the liquid evaporates. This should take about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Add thyme and another 1/3 cup of broth, and cook until the liquid evaporates.
  • Add the balsamic vinegar and the remaining broth, cooking until liquid evaporates. The final simmer takes about 12-15 minutes.
  • The results will be soft and tender onions with a tart sauce that is slightly syrupy but not at all loose.
  • To fill the Phyllo cups you can either use a pastry bag with a star tip or a teaspoon. If you are using cream cheese, allow it to soften a bit and mix with a tablesoon of milk.) Place a small amount of the yogurt or cream cheese in the shell filling about 1/3 to 1/2 way to the top. Top each with a spoonful of the onions.
  • Bake the tartlets in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
  • To garnish, you can pipe little rosettes of yogurt or cream cheese on top and sprinkle with a few fresh thyme leaves.
