Caramelized Onion, Blackberry, Blue Cheese Puffs

blue cheese puffs

I love movie night. Whether the hubs and I are going out for date night to see the latest film, or we stay home to relax to watch a great movie.

I am a snacker. Obviously popcorn at the movies, but when we stay home, I like to nosh a little too. Especially if we invite friends over for some relaxing but fun time movie night.

I love to offer some yummy appetizers, and if those appetizers come with cheese, then that is always a crown pleaser and of course, one of my all time favorite. Cheese, yes please.

I love this appetizer and so do my guests. It is savory and sweet and of course in puff pastry! They are also simple to make.

Castello Danish Blue cheese is what I use because it is so creamy and I love the tangy flavor. It compliments the sweetness of the blackberry so well.

Caramelized Onion, Blackberry, Blue Cheese Puffs


  • Puff Pastry (1 sheet)
  • 1 yellow onion (sliced)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Blackberry Preserves
  • Castello Danish Blue Cheese Crumbles


  1. Thaw your puff pastry sheet, (about 40 minutes.) Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. In a sauté pan, add butter and onion and cook on low, covered until onion is caramelized. Once puff pastry is thawed, cut into 9 square pieces. Place puff pastry into mini muffin pan and form into a cup. Add about a tablespoon of onion, a spoonful of blackberry preserves and top with crumbled blue cheese.
  2. Bake in the oven for 12 - 15 minutes.
