  1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir for 4-6 minutes or until tender. Transfer mushrooms to a bowl. Wipe out the pan.
  2. Melt remaining butter in the same pan over medium heat. Add onions; cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 20-25 minutes longer or until onions are golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add wine; cook and stir until liquid is absorbed. Stir in thyme and mushrooms.
  3. Reduce heat to low. Gradually stir in 1 cup Grand Cru® until melted. Remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Heat oven to 400°F. Line two 15 x 10-inch baking pans with parchment paper.
  5. Unfold one sheet puff pastry on a lightly floured surface; roll out to a 9-inch square. Cut pastry into 9 squares, 3-inches each. Transfer pastries to prepared pan. Score a 1/2-inch border on edges of pastries with a knife. Prick inside of pastries with a fork. Repeat step with remaining pastry. Brush pastries with egg wash.
  6. Spoon heaping tablespoonful mushroom mixture into the center of each square. Sprinkle with remaining Grand Cru®. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Dot with cranberry sauce. Garnish with thyme. Serve with remaining cranberry sauce.
