  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; add water, thyme, salt and pepper and continue cooking until golden and tender, 8 to 10 minutes more, adding water as needed to prevent overbrowning.
  3. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface into a 9-by-13-inch rectangle. Brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Spread the onions over the dough and scatter goat cheese on top. Starting with a long side, roll the dough into a log. Cut into 12 slices and place in the prepared muffin tin.
  4. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 3. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Let stand for 15 minutes before baking.
