We liked this. I did not make it as a snack, halved the recipe, used a large cutter and made it into large turnovers which we had with a salad as a main course. The pastry is very good but it is important to roll it out thin. The last one I rolled out I made thicker (to use the pastry up, being frugal) but it was not as good as the ones with the thinner shells. The pastry was easy to work with after its time in the fridge. The only minor thing I changed was adding a handfull of fresh chopped parsley to the mushroom filling after it was cooked. Thanks Kim for a good vegetarian meal!!
These tasty little appetizers were delicious Kim. I made exactly as written, didn't change a thing. They were quick and easy to make. I didn't have any problems with the dough, I found it easy to work with. I did have quite a bit of filling leftover. The filling is wonderful. We didn't find them overly rich at all. These beautiful little treats were incredible served warm with a drink before dinner. Thank you so much for sharing.
My mom used to make these for parties and gave me this recipe when I got married. Now it's my favorite appetizer to make - people are always impressed that the entire thing is made from scratch!! I use a 4 inch circular cookie cutter with scalloped edges, which makes pretty shapes without a lot of work.
