In a hot pan add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the sliced onions and apples to pan. Cook over medium high heat. Cook and stir constantly until onions are caramelized. This takes about 10-15 minutes.
Add in the brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. Stir to combine. Cook one minute. Add in the cider. Turn heat to high. Bring to a boil. stir occasionally until cider cooks off.
Add the garlic , salt, pepper and thyme to onion mixture. Stir to combine. Cook for one or two minutes while stirring. Remove from heat. Cover to keep mixture warm.
Optional Cut baguettes in to 1 inch slices. Place in oven and toast them until light brown and a bit crunchy. I use toaster oven.
Spread the top of baguettes with cream cheese. Top with the apple and onion mixture and serve immediately.
