Mosserouns florys appears in DC 55 or in plain language Diversa  
Cibaria's recipe 55.
That's included in Curye on Inglysch on page 55. BUT it's also in  
Pleyn Delit as recipe 36.
(and that can be seen in Google Books)

It was indexed as "Mushroom Flourished" in the Concordance of English  
Recipes: Thirteenth Through Fifteenth Centuries (Medieval and  
Renaissance Texts and Studies) by Hieatt, Nutter, and Holloway
(whoever that might be : D ) That's a really, really good reference  
volume for looking up this sort of medieval English recipe or  
answering this sort of question.

It's mentioned in the Florilegium in the pasties-msg file and the  
mushrooms-msg file.
