From My Heart

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6 -NIV

Mushroom Turnovers from Mennonite Girls Can Cook

Do you ever get an unexpected invitation to a Chistmas gathering and panic because there isn’t time to prepare anything? I like that you can make the pockets ahead, freeze them unbaked and pop them in the oven when needed. They are so much better than what you pick up in the freezer section of the store!

What you need:
Pastry:
250 g / 8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup butter
1 cup flour
Filling:
2 Tbsp butter
1 medium onion, minced
½ lb fresh mushrooms, finely chopped
½ tsp salt
pinch thyme
2 Tbsp flour
¼ cup sour cream
1 egg, lightly beaten
How you make them:
1. Cream together cream cheese and butter.
2. Add flour, mixing until smooth. Cover and chill.
3. Sauté onion and mushrooms. Cook until tender.
4. Stir in salt, thyme, flour and sour cream. Cook until thickened. Cool.
5. Divide dough in half. Roll out each half very thin (1/8 “) and cut rounds with 2 1/2 – 3 inch cookie cutter.
6. Drop 1 tsp filling on each circle. Brush edges with egg.
7. Fold dough over filling. Press edges together with a fork and brush tops with egg.
8. Prick with fork.
9. Freeze unbaked.
Bake on parchment paper lined baking sheet at 425 F for 12 – 15 min. or until golden. Makes 3 – 3 1/2 dozen
