Let's Make It
Place flour, cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter and 1 tsp. rosemary in food processor; process, using pulsing action, until mixture pulls away from side of container. Remove dough from food processor; roll into ball. Flatten slightly. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour.
Meanwhile, melt remaining butter in large skillet on medium-low heat. Add onions; cook 20 to 25 min. or until golden brown, stirring frequently. Cool slightly.
Heat oven to 400ºF. Roll dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Use 2-inch cookie cutter to cut dough into 36 rounds, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place dough rounds on parchment-covered baking sheets. Top with feta, onions and remaining rosemary.
Bake 20 to 25 min. or until edges of crisps are golden brown. Cool slightly. Drizzle with balsamic glaze just before serving.
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
How to Make Balsamic Vinegar Glaze
Balsamic vinegar glaze can be purchased at your favorite grocery store. But it's so easy to make your own. Cook 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar with 1 Tbsp. brown sugar in small saucepan on medium heat 12 to 15 min. or until thickened, stirring frequently. (Reduction should be the consistency of syrup and coat the back of the spoon.)
The caramelized onions can be made ahead of time. Cool, then refrigerate up to 2 days before using as directed.
