Smoked Turkey Paté in Puff Pastry

Smoked turkey pat'e in puff pastry
1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
1 tablespoon margarine, melted
1 teaspoon minced garlic
¾ pound smoked turkey, cut into chunks
½ cup mayonnaise
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ cup minced scallions
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 sheet puff pastry, defrosted
1 egg yolk, beaten and mixed with 1 tablespoon water

Sauté mushrooms in margarine until liquid evaporates. Combine with garlic, turkey, mayonnaise, cayenne, scallions and soy sauce and purée in a food processor. Spoon into a 8-1/2 x 4-1/2-inch loaf pan lined with plastic wrap. Cover and chill – for at least 8 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Unmold turkey mixture and place in center of puff pastry. Fold pastry over and seal edges and sides – with water and your finger tips. Place seam side down on a lightly greased baking sheet. Roll out scraps of dough and cut out decorative shapes – leaves are nice. Place on top of pastry and brush with yolk-water mixture. Bake for about ½ hour.
