Maple onion twists

Maple onion twists
15 portions


  • Maple shortcrust pastry (see base recipe)
  • 2 medium onions, minced
  • 125ml pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Flour (for work surfaces)


  1. Use a non-stick pan to sauté the onions in maple syrup for about 20 minutes or until caramelised. Add salt and pepper to taste. Once cooked leave to one side to cool.
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. On a floured work surface, roll the dough into a rectangle measuring about 46cm x 20cm.
  4. Spread the caramelised onions onto half of the pastry and fold the other half over the top of the onions.
  5. Cut into strips and twist them.
  6. Place the twists on a baking sheet and put in the freezer for about 1 hour or until the dough is semi-frozen (this stops the dough expanding too much).
  7. Preheat your oven to 200C.
  8. Bake on the middle rack for about 20 minutes or until the twists are golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and leave to cool before serving.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
