Turkey Puffs with Cranberry-Pinot Sauce
(Source: Taste of Home)
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, finely diced
8 oz. mushrooms (I used a gourmet mix of oyster, shiitake, and baby bella), chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth
4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
8 ounces thinly sliced cooked turkey (I used about 1/2 cup for each of 4 puffs=2 cups)
1/2 cup spreadable chive and onion cream cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup dry red wine or additional chicken broth (I used Pinot Noir--the original recipe called for Cabernet)
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup jellied cranberry sauce (I used my homemade "Cranberry Strumpet" with whole cranberries)
1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and saute the onions and the mushrooms until tender, about 10 minutes.
3. On a lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry. Roll each sheet into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle; cut each into 2 pieces. Transfer to a lined baking sheet. Spoon mushroom mixture onto each pastry; top with turkey and cream cheese.
4. Lightly brush pastry edges with water. Bring long sides over filling, pinching seams and ends to seal. Turn pastries seam side down. Cut small slits into pastry. Brush tops with egg. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
5. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the broth, wine and vinegar. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in cranberry sauce until melted. Serve with pastries.
