  1. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and fry until soft. Stir in the garlic and mushrooms, season and cook for 5 mins until the mushrooms are soft. Stir in the parsley and cream. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Grease a 6-hole muffin tin with butter, then line each hole with a long thin strip of baking parchment. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and stamp out 6 x 10 cm circles. Press a circle into each hole to line. Roll out the remaining pastry (you may need to re-roll trimmings) and stamp out 6 x 8cm circles.
  3. Divide the mushroom mix between the pies. Brush the pastry edges with a little egg, top each with a pastry lid and carefully press the pastry edges together to seal.
  4. Brush with the remaining egg and sprinkle with caraway seeds. Bake for 25-30 mins until golden. Allow to cool in the tin slightly before serving, or cool on a wire rack and keep in airtight containers for up to 1 day. Reheat before serving.

These are really tasty and, I think, if you are hosting meat eaters and veggies, these are good for an alternative to mini pork pies. Very tasty although I added some Dijon mustard whilst cooking the mushrooms and I think this gave them extra flavour. 5 Stars!

Well these were fabulous After I added the cream to the mushroom mix, I let it boil down for a few minutes to thicken it. I don't like parsley so I added mixed herbs. I also seasoned the mix with salt and pepper. It does make 6 pies, and feel that 2 pies per person with a portion of mini baked potatoes and your choice of veg (I had asparagus) makes for a good meal :)

Perfect for vegetarian Christmas! Made this for my family's Christmas buffet, everyone loved it, vegetarian and meat eater alike. Easy to make and very hearty and tasty.

I'm not a big fan of parsley, so I think I used italian herb mix or tarragon instead. Instead of using a muffin tin I out the mini pies in cupcake cases, worked fine.
