Pastry Dough Ingredients
- 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp fine salt
- 1 cup cold Président unsalted butter
- 7 tbsp ice-cold water
Pastry Dough Directions
- Pulse together flour and salt in a food processor. Add butter and pulse until it mixture looks like coarse meal.
- Transfer the dough to a large bowl. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, working dough with your fingertips just until it comes together. Add only enough water so the dough comes together when you squeeze it.
- Gather dough into a ball, flatten it into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until chilled (about 30 minutes).
- 4 tbsp Président unsalted butter
- 1 1/2 lb mushrooms thinly sliced (crimini & shiitake mushrooms suggested)
- 3/4 tsp coarse salt
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
- 2 large cloves garlic minced
- 2 tsp fresh rosemary minced
- 2 tsp fresh thyme minced
- 2 tbsp white wine (or vegetable stock)
Mushroom Filling Directions
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Once hot, add mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid evaporates and mushrooms are tender (10 to 15 minutes).
- Add garlic, rosemary, and thyme, and cook 2 minutes. Stir in white wine (or vegetable stock) and cook until the liquid is evaporated, (about 30 seconds).
Finishing Touches Ingredients
- 8 oz Président Triple Crème Brie wedge
- 1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp water
- Preheat the oven to 400F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Slice Brie into 12 equal portions.
- Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and roll each into a ball. Roll out each ball on a floured surface to make a circle about 6 inches in diameter. Spoon about 3 tablespoon mushroom filling into the center of the pastry, and spread to about 1 1/2 to 2 inches from the edge of the pastry. Top with 1 piece of Brie.
- Fold the edge of the pastry up over the filling to create a border. Repeat for each pastry.
- Place pastries on baking sheet. Beat egg and 1 tablespoon water together in a small bowl and brush this on the border of the pastries (you will have extra eggwash – do not try to use it all).
- Bake until the crusts are golden brown, about 25 minutes, rotating the trays once halfway through. Serve warm or at room temperature.
