A friend of ours invited us to sauna on Saturday, and we thought it would be nice to bring some food with us. It needed to be something that can be eaten cold, and decided to make pastries. We bought frozen dough, but feel free to use your favourite dough recipe.
2 packages (=16 sheets) puff pastry
3 small shallots
1 big garlic clove
2 tbsp oil
2 dl pickled mushrooms
2,5 dl cooked barley (or rice)
0,5 dl oat cream
parsley and chervil
poppy seeds (optional)
Peel and finely chop the shallots, mince the garlic. Chop the mushrooms. Heat the oil in a frying pan and sauté the shallots and garlic for couple of minutes. Add the mushrooms and sauté few more minutes. Stir in the barley, cream and herbs.
Cut each puff pastry sheet in half to make 32 squares. Put a spoonful of the mushroom mixture on each square. Brush two sides with cold water and fold the square diagonally. Crimp the edges. Brush the pastries with cold water and sprinkle poppy seed on them. Bake in 225 celsius degrees about 15 minutes or until they’re golden brown.
