    Classic recipe

    Blazei Mushroom and Brie Hand Pies

    Pastéis, a popular Brazilian street food, are small hand pies stuffed with savory fillings such as cheese, meat or vegetables. They are the perfect vehicle to showcase the complex flavor and almond-like aroma of the Blazei Mushroom, which pairs deliciously with the richness and funky-sweet taste of brie.
