Ingredients

  • 1 puff pastry sheet
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) truffle oil
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) heavy cream
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1/2 pound (225 g) mixed mushrooms, such as oyster, shiitake, and cremini, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch (30 cm) square. Trim the edges to make an even square. Place the pastry on a baking sheet.
  3. Brush the pastry with the beaten egg. Using a fork, prick the pastry all over. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let cool.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the truffle oil, cream, shallot, garlic, mushrooms, wine, thyme, salt, and pepper. Spread the mixture over the cooled pastry.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
