Caramelized Onion Tarts!

This past January I married a wonderful young man whom shares my love of food. At the wedding, there were these delicious goat cheese tarts with carmelized onions. Unfortunately, because we had to be in the receiving line, we only got one of these tasty treats.
After scouring my grocery store, I discovered frozen some mini-Fillo (Phyllo) Shells already baked and ready for me to use. I was so excited at the thought of making my very own carmelized tarts that I bought them on a whim.
I finally had a chance to put them together and they were incredible!

Here are two simple recipes for using Fillo Shells:

Carmelized Onion Tart Ingredients
1 medium onion, sliced
1 tbsp butter or margarine
1/2 tsp of sugar
1 package of Fillo Shells
4 oz of 1/3 less fat Philadelphia cream cheese (or goat cheese) at room tempurature

Carmelized Onion Tart Directions
Cut up the onion into thin strips. Saute the onion in the butter on low heat for 10-15 minutes. Add the sugar and saute for 2 more minutes.
Meanwhile, put about 1 tsp of cream cheese in each of the Fillo shells. When the onions are fully cooked, place the onions on top and enjoy!

Strawberry Tart Ingredients
6-7 medium strawberries, washed and sliced
1 tsp of sugar
1/2 tsp lemon (or lime) juice
1 package of Fillo Shells
4 oz of 1/3 less fat Philadelphia cream cheese (or goat cheese) at room tempurature

Strawberry Tart Directions
Put about 1 tsp of cream cheese in each of the Fillo shells.
Then, wash and cut up the strawberries into small slices. Cook the strawberries in the lemon juice and sugar on low heat for 2-4 minutes or until tender. Finally, place the strawberries on top and enjoy!

Both of these treats are wonderful as an appetizer or dessert!
