Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 to 5 crimini mushrooms or button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Sea salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 (17.3-ounce) package frozen puff pastry dough, thawed
  • 1 (1-pound) trimmed beef tenderloin, cut into 24 cubes (about 3/4 inch each)
  • 1/3 cup Boursin cheese

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 450°. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and rosemary; sauté 3 minutes or until browned. Stir in pepper and 1/8 teaspoon sea salt. Set aside.
  2. 2. Whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl.
  3. 3. Roll 1 puff pastry sheet into a 9- x 12-inch rectangle on a lightly floured work surface. Cut into 12 (3-inch) squares. Arrange 1 beef cube in the center of each pastry square, and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt. Top each beef cube with about 1/2 teaspoon Boursin cheese and 1 mushroom slice. Brush edges of pastry squares with egg mixture. Fold dough corners over filling in the center to make a packet, pinching to seal. Place on a large, parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients, and brush all with remaining egg mixture.
  4. 4. Bake 9 minutes or until pastry is puffed and golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes.
