2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 cup shredded manchego cheese, plus additional cheese for sprinkling

1. Heat oven to 400 F.

2. Peel and slice the onion. Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions. Chop the garlic cloves and add to the pan along with a bay leaf. Season with salt and white pepper to taste. Let the onions sizzle until golden and caramelized.

3. Cut puff pastry into circles using a 31/2-inch ring molds and carefully stretch dough to fit snugly into greased four-inch tart pans. With the tip of knife or the tines of a fork, prick dough with the tip of a knife; set aside.
