Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius.
  2. Heat the butter in a frying pan. You need a pan that you will be able to transfer from the stove top to the oven. When the butter starts to sizzle add the sugar and thyme and stir it a bit.
  3. Place the onions neatly in the pan. Turn the heat down and cook for about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat. Cover the pan with alfoil and put the pan of onions in the oven. You need to cook them for about 50-60 minutes. You want them to be soft but for the onions to retain their shape.
  5. Remove from the oven. If you notice that there is a lot of juice in your pan, return the pan to the stove and cook for a few minutes until the juices have reduced.
  6. Cut the sheet of pastry into a round slightly bigger than your pan. Place it over the top of the onions and tuck it in around the edges. Return to the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the pastry has puffed up and is golden.
  7. Remove from the oven and let it sit in the pan for about 10 minutes before you turn it out. Put a flat plate or board over your pan and using a tea towel or oven gloves turn your pan inside down, shake it a little and your tarte tartin should turn out onto the plate. If some of the onions stick to the pan it is easy to take them out and put them back on the tarte.
