Ingredients

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat, and cook the mushrooms and shallots (with the rosemary if you are using it) until the mushrooms are tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Pour in the vinegar and maple syrup and stir to blend well. Allow this mixture to cool.

In a large bowl combine the rest of the ingredients, except for the puff pastry and the egg, with the mushroom mixture. Keep chilled until ready to use.

Cut each pastry sheet into 9 squares (3x3). Brush lightly with the egg wash and place a mound of the mushroom filling in the center of each one. Fold them into a triangle and pinch the edges to seal well. Brush lightly with additional egg wash and cut a small slit in each to vent.

Bake the turnovers for 12 to 15 minutes or until deep golden brown.

Notes

On hydrating mushrooms

Place the dried mushrooms in about 2 cups of very hot water. Allow them to sit for 30 minutes. Remove the mushrooms carefully, leaving any sediment in the bottom of the bowl. Carefully pour off the resulting mushroom stock, leaving the sediment behind. You may refrigerate or freeze the mushroom stock.

Perfect Solstice party finger food

I made those turnovers for the first time for our Solstice potluck. It was a success. I had enough filling (because i had a big pear and also used a little more haslenuts) to use the fourh sheet of the pastry dough, so I made 36 total. I also roasted the nuts. Everybody that had a taste wanted more and they looked so good people were surprised I made them. I saw the segment on Cisco and looked for recipe online. Watch the video. Those Tunovers are easy to make and look and taste professional. Thanks Lynne for publishing it.
