  • Serves 6
  • Preparation time 10 minutes
  • Cooking time 20 minutes
  • 30g butter
  • 300g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 500g pack ready-made puff pastry, thawed if frozen
  • Flour, for dusting
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 12 tsp pesto sauce
  • 200g grated mozzarella or Cheddar cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC/fan 200ºC/gas mark 7.
  2. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and sauté the mushrooms for three to four minutes. Remove from the heat and cool.
  3. Roll out the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle measuring about 40cm x 20cm. Use a 9cm plain cutter to stamp out 12 circles (re-rolling the trimmings). Arrange on one or two greased baking sheets.
  4. On each circle, score a border 1cm from the edge, all the way round, taking care not to cut right through the pastry. Brush the border with beaten egg and spread one teaspoon of pesto sauce over the inner circle of each one.
  5. Spoon the cooled mushrooms on top of the pesto sauce and sprinkle with the grated cheese. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until risen and golden brown. Serve while warm.
