Onion Pie with Jarlsberg and Thyme

Spring has supposedly sprung.  Not around this neck of the woods, which I am pretty bitter about, but that doesn't mean I can't still try out some new spring recipes and pretend that the snow has melted and I'm wearing short sleeves and sandals.  Here is one that I tried out last night:

I've always been interested in Scandinavian food, so I was really excited when I got this great Norwegian cookbook for Christmas:

After browsing through it a few times, I finally decided on making a recipe for onion pie with Jarlsberg and thyme.

I talked yesterday about not eating much dairy- but I have a weakness for Jarlsberg.  Definitely one of my favorite types of cheese!  This recipe was super easy!  I adapted it a little bit, so for my version, you'll need:

2 red onions cut into 1/2 inch slices
2 minced garlic cloves
1 bay leaf
7 peppercorns
3 whole cloves
2 tbsp of butter (I used smart balance.)
1 sheet of puff pastry
2 tbsp fresh thyme
1 cup shredded Jarlsberg

All you need to do is put the puff pastry in a baking dish, I used a 8x13 Le Creuset.  Sauté the onions and garlic in the butter over low-medium heat.  Add the peppercorns, bay leaf, and cloves and cook until the onions are soft and turning translucent.

 Remove peppercorns, bay leaf, and cloves.  Add salt to taste. Pour onions and garlic into the puff pastry, top with all of the cheese and half of the thyme.  Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes or until turning brown.  Top with the remaining thyme.

Mine didn't turn out quite as pretty as the picture in the cookbook, but it still made us do this:
