Method

  1. Roll the pastry out on a floured surface and cut out 4 circles, about 15cm wide. Leave to chill on a lined baking tray in the fridge.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat a large frying pan until hot, then add the butter and fry the mushrooms for 5 mins until there is no liquid left in the pan. Season, then take off the heat and mix mushrooms with the Parmesan, parsley and garlic.
  3. Score a 1cm border around the edge of each tart, then spoon the mushrooms into the centre circle. Brush the edge with beaten egg, then bake the tarts for 20 mins until puffed up and golden. Serve immediately.

In case no one has told you: blind baking is simply putting the pastry into the oven (with baking beans if you have them, to stop the base rising and bubbling) to seal the pastry with heat before you add the filling. In a hot oven these cases would need no more than 4-5 mins, keep an eye on them though.

I made this a couple of weeks ago for a group of friends and they are still raving about it! I agree with the blind baking part, just make sure not to over cook as the pastry will start to burn when cooking with the ingredients added. I also used some crushed salted & roasted cashew nuts to the top......GORGEOUS!! Im making this again tonight and also cooking balsamic and Muscavado sugar carrots....MMMMM.

I made this as a starter recently. I made the mushroom mixture ahead and also cut the pastry out into circles and stored both in the fridge.

Just before I was ready to cook, I popped the pastry circles in the oven for about 5-10 minutes (to avoid the soggyness others have described), added the mushroom mixture and cooked for a further 20 mins. approx.

It was a great success!

Brilliant. We added a bit of mushroom soy to the sauté and it was delicious.

A fantastic combination of flavours. Served with a rocket salad. Great for a dinner party starter as can prepare ahead and just put together at the last minute. Lovely

I wish I had read the above comments first. Didn't blind bake and the tarts were soggy. The filling was very tasty though!

I found the tip about blind baking very good, I also added a little chopped red onion, fantastic.

Fabulous, easy starter to impress your guests along with some salad greens on the side. Yummy! I even had success assembling the day ahead and keeping covered in the fridge until ready to bake.

This was so yummy - I tried it twice, once at full size, with no cheese and red wine gravy poured on when baked, and once by making lots of little circles of pastry with cookie cutters, and making miniture tarts with a creamy sauce.

Absolutely scrummy - I decided to reduce the size down to about 10cm and blind baked the cases first. Not soggy at all - but quite garlicky! Yum! Might add some bacon pieces next time to satisfy my cave man boyfriend!!!

Very tasty. I would suggest you blind bake the puff pastry case for a few minutes first as the base was soggy the first time I made it.
