                         Filling:
      1/2  tsp           olive oil
    1      tbsp          minced shallot
      3/4  c             mushrooms -- finely chopped
      1/3  c             seeded tomato -- finely chopped
      3/4  tsp           fresh thyme or 1/4 tsp dried -- crumbled
      1/8  tsp           each salt and pepper
      1/3  c             feta cheese -- finely crumbled
    1      sheet         frozen puff pastry -- thawed
    1                    egg -- beaten with fork
 
 Heat oven to 400.  Have a large cookie sheet ready.
 
 Filling:  Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat.  Add shallot and
 saute 2-3 minutes until soft.  Add mushrooms and saute 2-3 minutes until
 mushrooms are soft.  Add tomato, thyme, salt and pepper and saute 1
 minute more.  Scrape the mixture into a small bowl and cool about 5
 minutes.  Add feta cheese; stir to mix well.
 
 Unfold puff pastry on a lightly floured surface.  With a folling pin,
 roll into a 12-inch square.  Cut the pastry in thirty-six 2-inch
 squares.  Place 1/2 tsp of mushroom mixture in center of each square,
 leaving a 1/2=inch border all around.  Moisten edges with water.  Fold
 in half diagonally to make triangles.  Press edges with tines of a table
 fork to seal in filling.  Brush tops lightly with egg.  With a spatula,
 transfer pastries to ungreased cookie sheet.
 
 Bake 12-15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.  Serve warm or at
 room temperature.
