Blue Cheese and Caramelized-Onion Squares -

This is a new ap-petizer for us. We made the crust from scratch although we think you could use Pillsbury crescent rolls flattened into a 10"x13" rectangle. The dough was made from 2C flour, 2t baking powder, 3/4t salt, 3/4C milk, 1/4C olive oil and 2T butter. Mix the dry ingregients, whisk together the liquids, pour the liquid into the drys and mix to form a ball. Roll into a 10x13 rectangle and place on baking paper on a cookie sheet. Set aside while you prepare the topping. Thinly slice 3 large sweet onions. Slowly cook them in 2T butter for about 10 min. Add 1T finely chopped rosemary, 1t sugar and 1/2t salt. Continue cooking until the onions are lightly browned and caramelized. Spread the onions evenly on the dough crumble on 6oz. blue cheese. Bake about 20 min at 425 degrees until the cheese is browned and bubbling. We served it with grapes on the side.
