These tasty little filo cups are simply filled with a piece of brie and some carmelized onions with thyme. Sautée the onions in butter first to get them golden brown.  One large onion and one wedge of brie makes 8-12 onion bites.

Great for entertaining! Enjoy!

I apologize for the lack of recent posts! I am in New York for photo shoots and meetings, but I promise to post new recipes soon.  In the meantime, here are some previously posted recipes that I have made new watercolor titles for. Enjoy!
