1.Preheat oven to 200°C. Place pastry on an oven tray lined with baking paper.
2.Meanwhile, melt 20gm butter in a small saucepan; sauté shallot and garlic until tender (2-3 minutes), transfer to a bowl and combine with herbs, lemon rind and half the egg. Season to taste then spread in an even layer over pastry, leaving a 3cm border.
3.Melt remaining butter in a small saucepan, remove from heat, add lemon juice and season to taste.
4.Scatter mushrooms and brie over shallot mixture, then drizzle with butter mixture. Fold in pastry edges, pleating as you go. Brush edges with remaining egg and bake until puffed and golden (35-40 minutes). Serve topped with thyme.

We use Carême all-butter puff pastry, which comes in pre-rolled 375gm sheets.
