Petits chaussons au Roquefort

Another way to use the pâte brisée!  The rolled out dough is cut in small 3 inch squares instead of a large pie crust and each piece is filled in the center and folded into a triangle.

1/4 lb of Roquefort
1/2 stick of unsalted butter softened
1 egg yolk
1 Tbsps of cognac
pepper
chives or minced onion tops
1 ‑ 3 Tbsps of whipping cream
1 egg beaten with ½ Tb of water (egg wash)

  • Mash the Roquefort and beat in the butter, egg yolk, cognac, pepper, chives.
  • Beat in the cream by tablespoons. The mixture should be thick.
  • Cut the dough in 3″ squares and fill each center. Run a brush, wet with water, on the edges.
  • Fold and press the edges firmly. Press the end of a fork all around the edges for decoration.
  • Paint the top of each chausson with the egg wash.
  • Make a design on the surface of the dough with the back of a knife or a fork.  Poke a hole in the center of each chausson.
  • Place on a baking dish and refrigerate until firm.  Preheat oven to 425 °F
  • Bake in upper third of the oven until brown (about 15 minutes)
