How to Make Mushroom Turnovers by Sisterhood of Temple Avoda


  1. Pre-heat oven to 450º.
  2. Combine cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter, and 1 and 1/2 cup flour. Blend well and chill for one hour.
  3. Melt 3 tablespoons butter, add mushrooms and onion; cook, stirring, for a few minutes. Add thyme, salt and pepper; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons flour. Mix well. Stir in the cream and cook very gently until thickened (a few minutes). Set aside to cool.
