Recipe type: Appetiser
Cuisine: French
Serves: 10
  • For 10 pieces:
  • pastry dough 450 gr (1 package)
  • 1 canne mushrooms
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 50 ml dry white wine
  • salt / pepper to taste
  • fresh dill
  1. Defrost dough approx. 2 hours ahead of time.
  2. When defrosted, dust the table with flour, then scrape circles with a round shape (biscuit or even a glass approx.6 cm /2.5 inch diameter). Scrap half of them in the middle with another round shape, but smaller.
  3. Brush the filled circles with water then stick them together with the empty ones. Place them slightly in a pan lined with parchment paper.
  4. Remaining dough and put it in a separate tray.
  5. Preheat oven to 200 ยบ C (420 F) and bake until nicely browned approx. 20-25 mins., depending on each oven.
  6. They will raise in height enough and the hole of the little basket could be filled with dough from its base, but you can push gently with your hand (as long as they are hot) to let the batter down a little bit so they can be filled.
  7. Filling:
  8. Saute a chopped onion in 2 tablespoons oil until tender. Add the wine, salt and pepper and let it simmer.
  9. Chop the mushrooms (very thin) in food processor then add them over onions and let them simmer together a few minutes, stirring constantly. When wine has evaporated, turn off the heat and add chopped dill.
  10. Set aside until cool enough, then with a teaspoon, fill the baskets.
  11. You can serve hot or cold!
  12. Enjoy!
