Sour Cream and Beef Turnovers Recipe

This is a family favorite. I always serve these turnovers with a large tossed green salad at family get-togethers. They freeze well, too.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch YIELD:54 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons water


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening until crumbly. Stir in sour cream and egg yolk just until moistened. Shape into a ball. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  • 2. Preheat oven to 450°. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef, onion and mushrooms until meat is no longer pink. Remove from heat; drain. Stir in sour cream, salt, oregano and pepper.
  • 3. On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 3-in. round cutter. Place a rounded teaspoon of filling on one side of each circle; fold dough over filling. Press edges with a fork to seal. Prick tops with a fork. Reroll scraps; repeat.
  • 4. Place on greased baking sheets. Beat egg with water; brush over turnovers. Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
    Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked pastries on waxed paper-lined baking sheets until firm. Transfer to resealable plastic freezer bags; return to freezer. To use, bake pastries as directed, increasing time as necessary to heat through. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.
