- Cooking and finalizing
Place the puff pastry squares on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone sheet. Brush the top of each pastry with the egg mixture. Place a little bit of the mushroom mix in the center of each pastry. Transfer to the oven for 10-15 minutes.
On your serving dish, place the puff pastries and garnish with the Comté cheese shavings and the pistou.
If the puff pastry is not pre rolled, try and make sure that it isn't thicker than 0.5 cm.
