Instructions

For the Mushroom Pate Pastry

    5. Preheat the oven to the temperature indicated on the package (220 C).
    6. Place a star on the cookie sheet and using a spoon, place a spoonful of the mushroom pate in the center.

    1. Take a 2nd star, put some water along the inside edges of the star and lay it carefully over the star with the mushroom pate.
    2. Gently line up each of the points of the star to match, they will swell and close as they bake.
    3. Do this procedure for the rest of the dough.

    1. With the left over pieces of dough, you can put them together and roll out the dough again to cut more and thus use all of the dough.
    2. Bake the stars for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
