Easy Mushroom Puffs
1- 8 oz. container cream cheese (Philadelphia Swirls -garlic and herb works best)
2- 4.5 oz jars sliced mushrooms drained
1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1- tsp. chives (dried or fresh are fine)
1/4- tsp. hot sauce
1- 17.3 oz. package frozen puff pastry sheets thawed
1 large egg
1 Tbl. water
freshly ground pepper
Combine the first six ingredients in a bowl, cover and chill for one hour. Whisk together egg and water and set in a dish next to your pastry to use as an egg wash.
Roll one sheet of pastry into a 16″ x 10″ rectangle, and cut pastry in half lengthwise. Spread 1/4 of the filling (about 1/2 cup) down the center of each rectangle. Brush edges of pastry with egg wash.
Fold pastry in half lengthwise over filling, and seal edges of pastry with a fork. Cut each filled pastry length into approximately 10 pieces, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining pastry and filling. Brush remaining egg wash over top of each puff pastry and sprinkle with pepper. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes about 40 puffs.
Note: Filling can be made up to two days ahead of time and chilled.
