Rivka's Vol-au-Vents

Recipe by Mirj2338
READY IN: 45mins


  • 1
    package prepared frozen puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1
    onion, finely chopped
  • 2
    lbs mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1
    mushroom, cube and hot water to make a thin paste
  • cornflour, dissolved in a little cold water to make a paste
  • 1
    egg, beaten for brushing on to the pastry


  • Fry the onion in oil until golden, add the mushrooms and cook until soft.
  • Add the mushroom cube dissolved in water.
  • Cook a further few minutes, and add the cornflour paste to thicken, if needed.
  • (Rivka's comment-- I like the consistency to be fairly thick and creamy, but if you prefer it thinner just add a little water.) To make the cases: Roll our the pastry and cut into circles with a cookie cutter-- you will need to make double the amount of circles than cases needed.
  • Cut half the circles with a smaller circle cutter to make an O shape in the center.
  • Brush a beaten egg on to the surface of the solid circles, then lay the O shaped circles on tipe and brush again with the egg.
  • Bake on greaseproof paper or on oiled baking sheets at 350 degrees F till well risen and golden, about 1/2 an hour.
  • Cool and fill with the warm filling and serve.
