Mushroom Palmiers (D/P, TNT)
Source: A magazine
Yield: About 5 dozen

5 tablespoons butter or margarine
18 ounces mushrooms, finely chopped
1-1/2 medium onions, finely chopped
3/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme, crumbled
Freshly ground pepper
3 frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
2 eggs, beaten with
4 teaspoons water

Melt butter in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onions and cook until juices evaporate, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes.

Mix in lemon juice, then flour and thyme. Stir 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Cool.

Spread 1/3 of mushroom mixture evenly over 1 pastry sheet. Starting from one short side, roll up jelly-roll fashion to center. Starting at second short side, roll up to center. Press two sides together and transfer to baking sheet. Repeat with remaining pastry sheets and mushrooms. Cover; chill until firm, at least 1 hour or overnight. (Can be prepared 1 week ahead and frozen. Thaw slightly before continuing.)

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Using serrated knife, slice pastry into 1/4" thick slices. Arrange cut side down on ungreased baking sheets, spacing 1" apart. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Wrap tightly and refrigerate.) Brush with egg-water mixture. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve warm.

Poster's Notes:
I've always used margarine instead of the butter.

These look impressive, like you worked hard on them, but they are good and they are delicious. I believe that I got it from a magazine (a long time ago). I love the fact that you can make them well ahead of time, freeze them raw and them just pop them in the oven.
