Recipe Time

Prep: 30 Minutes
Chill: 1 Hours
Cook: 15 Minutes
Bake: 20 Minutes


1 1/2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped onion
1 pound mushrooms, chopped
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons sherry
1 tablespoon butter, melted


Combine first 3 ingredients. Shape dough into a ball; cover and chill 1 hour.

Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add onion, and sauté 12 minutes or until onion is golden. Stir in chopped mushrooms, and sauté 3 minutes. Stir in thyme, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons flour evenly over mushroom mixture. Stir in sour cream and sherry. Remove from heat, and set aside.

Pat or roll chilled dough to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut with a 3-inch round cutter.

Spoon 1 teaspoon mushroom mixture on half of each dough circle, fold dough over filling. Press edges together with a fork to seal. Place turnovers on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned; brush tops evenly with melted butter.

Note: To make ahead, place uncooked turnovers in a single layer on baking sheets, and freeze. Transfer frozen turnovers to large zip-top plastic freezer bags, seal and freeze up to 1 month. Place frozen turnovers on ungreased baking sheets. Bake as directed.
