Beat cream cheese at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until smooth. Stir in mushrooms and next 4 ingredients. Cover and chill 1 to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 400°. Whisk together egg and 1 Tbsp. water in a small bowl. Roll 1 puff pastry sheet into a 16- x 10-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Cut pastry in half lengthwise. Spread 1/2 cup cream cheese mixture down center of each rectangle; brush edges with egg mixture. Fold each pastry half lengthwise over filling, and pinch edges to seal. Cut pastries into 10 pieces each, and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining puff pastry sheet, egg mixture, and cream cheese mixture.
Brush remaining egg mixture over tops of pastry pieces; sprinkle with pepper.
Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes or until browned. Serve immediately.
*2 (2-oz.) packages buttery garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese may be substituted.
Note: To make ahead, prepare recipe as directed through Step Freeze pieces on baking sheet until firm (about 1 hour), and transfer to zip-top plastic freezer bags. Freeze up to 1 month. To bake, place frozen puffs on parchment paper-lined baking sheets, and proceed as directed in Step
I agree about using fresh mushrooms and the recipe needed a little salt. Maybe a little more parmesan, too. They were a little bland made exactly like the recipe but they were very easy to make. I baked them in a roaster since the turkey was in the oven and they came out perfect.
I served these at a birthday party this weekend and everyone love the flavors. I used fresh mushrooms instead of the canned but did not sauté and they were perfect. The only thing was the rolling out the pastry sheets, they tended to get too soft, but it worked when they were baked - fluffy and yummy! Lot of rave reviews. Will definitely make again!
These were very popular at our party. Like other reviewers, I sautéed my own mushrooms in butter with a little garlic and some red pepper flakes. I recommend serving them hot out of the oven. For our party, we had a variety of other self-serve items, but delivered these as soon as they finished baking.
I hate to review a recipe that I've made changes to, but I altered this recipe for a party and they were a huge hit! I used fresh mushrooms and cooked them down with salt, pepper, red pepper flake, garlic, and green onions. I let them cool and mixed with the cream cheese and parm. I then added some Swiss cheese I had in the fridge before I folded the pastry over. Just delicious. Everyone was asking how to make them.
