Mushroom Puffs are a quick and easy appetizer that your friends and family will love. One online reviewer says, "Very tasty and easy to make!!"

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Brush remaining egg mixture over tops of pastry pieces; sprinkle with pepper.

Step 4

Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes or until browned. Serve immediately.

Step 5

*2 (2-oz.) packages buttery garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese may be substituted.

Step 6

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 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.

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.

These were really good! My sister made them New Years Eve. I made some last night with 8 oz of real sauted mushrooms. ( I agree on the canned mushroom comment.) I think I will try them again without the cream cheese, just some mushrooms, pesto & parmesan. Recipe only makes 20 appetizers, not 3 dozen. ************************************* Jan 20, 2013 OOPS! I did make this again, 2 more times, except I did a better job at actually reading the recipe. It does make 40 appetizers, you are supposed to make both sheets. I just cut the cream cheese down to 4 oz. & used 8 oz. of sauted mushrooms when using only 1 puff pastry sheet.

Never use can mushrooms in anything. They are slimmy and gross. Sear and sauté Fresh ones in a pan with salt, a little sugar, pepper and butter until brown. Then this recipe would be good.
