Mushrooms And Pimientos In Puff Pastry
The Foods and Wines of Spain
1 package puff pastry
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1 clove garlic minced
2 Tablespoons minced pimiento
1/4 pound mushrooms, chopped fine
1/2 dried red chili crumbled or 1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
Heat the oil in a skillet and sauté the onion and garlic until onion is wilted. Add the pimiento and cook for a minute, then the mushrooms, chili pepper, salt, and pepper and sauté until mushrooms are softened. Remove from the heat and stir in cheese. Roll the puff pastry to 1/8 inch. You can cut into 1 3/4 inch circles and place 1 teaspoon of filling on half of the circles. Moisten the edges with water, cover with the remaining pastry circles, and press with the tines of a fork to seal. I prefer to make them triangle shape ,by cutting the pastry into 2 1/2 inches squares, add filling on one half and then folding over corner to
form a triangle. (May be prepared ahead and refrigerated) Place on a dampened cookie
sheet and bake at 425 F on the upper rack of the oven for 7 to 10 minutes or until golden.
( To cut down on work you could make this appetizer in a larger size and Bake for about 20 minutes.) Then cut into wedges.
