Nutritional Facts

1 filled pastry with 3 tablespoons sauce equals 1,037 calories, 53 g fat (19 g saturated fat), 144 mg cholesterol, 1,295 mg sodium, 103 g carbohydrate, 12 g fiber, 31 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine broth and mushrooms; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; let stand for 15-20 minutes or until mushrooms are softened. Using a slotted spoon, remove mushrooms; coarsely chop. Strain remaining broth through a fine mesh strainer. Set aside mushrooms and broth.
  2. In a large skillet, saute onion in butter until softened. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Add the tarragon, salt, pepper and reserved mushrooms and broth. Bring to a boil; cook over medium heat until liquid is evaporated.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry. Roll each sheet into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle; cut each into 2 pieces. Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Spoon mushroom mixture onto each pastry; top with turkey and cream cheese.
  4. Lightly brush pastry edges with water. Bring long sides over filling, pinching seams and ends to seal. Turn pastries seam side down. Cut small slits into pastry. Brush tops with egg. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the broth, wine and vinegar. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in cranberry sauce until melted. Serve with pastries. Yield: 4 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2014

"These are really good! I used fresh mushrooms as others have suggested. I didn't do the sauce but next time I will. Delicious and rich!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 8, 2013

"These were phenomenal!!! I did not have jellied cranberry sauce so I substituted strawberry preserves and thought they tasted great. It had incredible flavor and I look forward to making this again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 8, 2012

"Made this for dinner tonight using turkey breast that was roasted at my grocery store's deli--great shortcut when you don't have Thanksgiving leftovers! I used fresh mushrooms (a "gourmet mix" of oyster, shiitake, and baby bella) and sauteed them with the onions. I also added a few cloves of garlic to that duxelles-type mixture, and used dried thyme instead of tarragon. For the sauce, I used Pinot Noir instead of Cabernet, and I used my own homemade (whole berry) cranberry salsa to mix in. SO GOOD!"

MY REVIEW

"I'm not fond of dried mushrooms,will use fresh or even canned next time."
