1. Peel the shallots without completely trimming the end tips. Blanch shallots by boiling in salted water for 4 minutes. Drain, let cool and split in half lengthways.

4. Drop 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar in the bottom of each tartlet pan, then place shallots tightly. Then top with the pastry circle and fold the edges into the pan. Prick with a fork or knife.

5. Bake for 25 minutes at 360°F (180°C).

6. Remove from the oven, turn the tatins upside-down on a cooling rack covered with parchment paper, remove the pans after a few minutes.
