  • Beat cream cheese product and butter in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Gradually beat in flour. Shape into ball. Wrap in plastic wrap. Let stand 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, cook meat and onions in large saucepan on medium-high heat 7 to 8 min. or until meat is done, stirring frequently. Stir in bouillon and spices. Remove from heat. Add potatoes; mix well. Cool completely.
  • Heat oven to 400ºF. Roll out pastry on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Use 4-inch cookie or biscuit cutter to cut pastry into 24 rounds, rerolling scraps as necessary. Discard any remaining dough.
  • Spoon 1 Tbsp. meat mixture onto centre of each pastry round; brush edge with egg. Fold in half; press edges together with fork to seal. Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Cut small slits in tops to vent; brush with remaining egg.
  • Bake 18 to 20 min. or until golden brown.

Make Ahead

This is a great make-ahead recipe. Assemble turnovers as directed; place on baking sheet and brush with egg as directed. Freeze until solid, then transfer to freezer-weight resealable plastic bag or freezer container. Freeze up to 3 months. When ready to serve, place desired number of turnovers on baking sheet. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour, then bake as directed.

How to Cook and Mash the Potatoes

Cook (3/4 lb./340 g) cut-up potatoes in boiling water 15 min. or until tender. Drain, then mash with potato masher or fork until smooth.


You can prepare the cream cheese pastry as directed using a food processor instead of a mixer.
