Mushroom-Goat Cheese Crustilliant

1 sheet prepared Puff Pastry

3 cups mushrooms sauteed with diced onion and garlic, portabella, button....
4 ounces Fresh, soft Goat Cheese
1 egg yolk

Sautee mushrooms till very dry. Mushroom mixture should be a fine chop, use the food processor, or chop by hand and chill. Mix chilled mushrooms with goats cheese and egg. Spread this mixture over the puff pastry, the mixture should be evenly distributed, but not necessarily a complete layer. Roll the pastry up so it's as long as possible. Try to roll as tight as possible without sqeezing the filling out. Put this log in the freezer for about 15 minutes. When the log is chilled solid, slice into 1/4 inch rounds, place on a silpat, parhment paper, or non-sick cookie sheet. If your non-stick device is reliable, press the rounds, smashing them flat, if you non-stick device is questionable, press them between the palms of your hands then lay them on your quesitonable device. Bake at 350, check after 8 minutes, if one side browns much faster than the other it is necessary to flip them over and cook another 3-4 minutes.
