This is a modified Gourmet recipe. I changed the filling amounts and switched up the sauce. This is wonderful for a dinner party as it's all prep work...you're not stuck in the kitchen while the party is heating up!

In a shallow roasting pan roast filets in middle of oven 12 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 110°F for rare, and cool (filets will be baked again after being wrapped in pastry). Chill filets, covered, until cold, about 1 hour.
