The cream cheese pastry caught my eye so I had to try it. Glad I did! I did make several modifications to "spice" it up a bit: I added a Tbsp of Parmeson, 1 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp of fresh pepper to the mushroom mixture. I also substituted cooked bacon instead of the ham and used oregano instead of thyme - simply what I had on hand. The pastry is really tasty - although you need to roll it thin otherwise the turnover will be too doughy. I managed to get 36 turnovers using a glass as my circle. Thanks so much - this will be a standard in my freezer to pull out for quick get-togethers.
