Ingredients

4 ounces cremini mushrooms

4 ounces chanterelle mushrooms

4 ounces oyster mushrooms

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 large shallot, minced

2 garlic cloves, minced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

1 1/2 cups goat cheese

1 large egg, beaten

8 sprigs fresh thyme, or as needed for garnish

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Unfold puff pastry sheet onto a lightly-floured work surface.

Gently pat down or roll out dough with a rolling pin.

Cut into 4-inch rounds.

Place cut pastry onto a baking sheet and brush with beaten egg (egg wash), and cook the puff pastry at 400 F for approximately 25-30 minutes, till golden brown, and set aside.

Cut the mushrooms into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Don't cut them too thin.

Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallot, garlic, then mushroom mix and cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are golden brown and shallots are soft and translucent, 6-8 minutes. Stir in balsamic and thyme, and cook until fragrant, for 30-60 seconds. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.

Transfer the puff pastry to a new baking sheet, cut off the tops of the pastry and press down on the pastry to fill with goat cheese (save the tops of pastry for garnish). Evenly spread the goat cheese inside the border, and top with mushroom mixture.

Bake again for about four minutes, until the goat cheese melts and the mushrooms are hot.

Place the tarts onto plates or platters, garnish with fresh thyme and tops of the pastry like little hats.
