Puff Pastry Tips

Puff Pastry is made up of layers of dough with butter between the layers. Always look for all-butter puff pastry, which tastes much better, and can be used for both sweet and savory recipes.

Always thaw puff pastry completely before using, and try to use it as soon as it’s thawed. You don’t want it to get too warm, because the butter will melt, causing the dough to be limp and difficult to work with.

I love to have some all-butter puff pastry in the freezer. It’s so versatile, and you can wrap just about anything, both savoury and sweet in it for a perfect appetizer. Almost everyone loves warm pastries, and I always notice that those disappear first at every gathering.

About Brie

Brie is a soft cow’s milk cheese that originated in the Brie region of France.  It has a creamy, buttery texture, and a bloomy white rind, which is edible. Unlike other cheeses, when brie is melted, it retains its structure. So It’s the perfect cheese for puff pastry.  Brie pairs well with almost everything, and it’s a natural choice for mushrooms.

Which Mushroom Varieties To Use For Puff Pastry Appetizers

There are many varieties of mushrooms. And, although you can use them all interchangeably, some varieties are particularly suited to a dish. For these mushroom brie puff pastry appetizers, I’m using cremini mushrooms. For me, the cremini is the best all-round mushroom that works for any dish. Creminis are a little more flavourful and have a firmer texture than white button mushrooms. Nonetheless, any mushroom variety will be delicious in this recipe, so use what you have.
