Today, I prepared an apple cheddar tart for lunch, a sweet and savory tart topped with maple-sauteed apples, caramelized onions, aged cheddar and walnuts – a delicious soul warmer for a cozy fall Sunday.

{ Apple Cheddar Walnut Tart }


1 tbsp. olive oil
1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
salt + pepper to taste
1 tbsp. butter
1 apple, cored and thinly sliced (Braeburn, Fuji, or Honeycrisp work well)
1 tbsp. maple syrup
1  shortpastry or pizza crust
1 c. shredded aged cheddar cheese
2 tbsp chopped walnuts


1. Heat oil in a large skillet over low heat. Add onion and cook until caramelized, stirring every 5 minutes or so at first and then, as the onions begin to brown, more frequently. This could take from 30 minutes to over an hour, depending on your stove. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.
2. Preheat oven at 180 degrees
3. Add butter and melt over medium heat. Once butter has melted, add apple slices and saute for about 10 minutes, or until softened, stirring frequently. Stir in maple syrup and continue cooking until liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat.
4. Top shortpastry with caramelized onions, shredded cheese, apples, and walnuts. Bake for about 30-35 min.
