Servings: Makes 7
Prep Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 40 min
1 cup fresh oysters, drained and chopped
1/2 lb button mushrooms, chopped
2 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
pepper, to taste
4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 oz. cream cheese
In a frying pan, saute mushrooms in butter until tender. Blend in flour and cook until bubbly. Gradually add milk and cook until smooth and thickened, stirring constantly. Add salt, celery salt, pepper, lemon juice and oysters. Cook over medium-low hear until oysters start to curl up (about 5 minutes), stirring occasionally.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Soften cream cheese and butter and blend well in a medium bowl. Stir in flour to form dough. Transfer dough into a plastic kitchen bag and chill in refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove from fridge and shape into 7 balls about 1/2 oz each. Flatten and place in an ungreased 4-oz cup muffin tin. Bake 30-40 minutes or until golden.
Fill crusts with oyster filling; garnish with parsley and parmesan cheese. Serve hot.
Tip: For a quicker recipe, a store-bought mini-pie crust may be substituted.
