Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 package (450 g) rolled-out frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) water
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) salted butter
  • 1 cup (250 mL) sliced onion
  • 3 cups (750 mL) sliced white and crimini mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each minced thyme and rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) beef broth
  • Fresh thyme leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). On a lightly floured surface, unfold one puff pastry sheet. Using a 3-inch round cutter, cut out 9 circles. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  2. Unfold the remaining pastry sheet. Cut 9 more circles out with the 3-inch round cutter; with a 2-inch cutter, cut centers out of the circles. Place the rings on top of the circles that are on the baking sheet. In a small bowl, whisk egg and water; brush over pastries. Bake until dark golden brown, 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes stirring. Stir in sliced mushrooms, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes stirring. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and beef broth. Add the broth mixture to the mushrooms and bring to a simmer for 30 seconds, until thickened. Take off the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. When the puff pastry is cool enough to handle, hollow out pastries with a small spoon. Fill each pastry with mushroom mixture and garnish with fresh thyme leaves.
