Serves: 36 

  • 50g butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 red onions, thinly sliced

  1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5. Line two baking trays with parchment.
  2. Melt the butter and olive oil in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Stir the onions into the butter, and cook until the onions have softened and caramelised to a deep, golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Stir frequently as the onions cook to keep them from burning. Once done, season with salt and pepper, and set aside to cool.
  3. Use a sharp knife to cut each sheet of puff pastry into 9 squares. Cut each square in half diagonally to yield 36 triangles. Place the triangles onto the prepared baking trays, and top with the caramelised onions, pears and 1 teaspoon of crumbled Stilton.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the pastry is puffed and golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.
