Hot Mushroom Turnovers

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 pound fresh mushrooms, minced
1 medium onion, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried whole thyme
1 egg, beaten

Combine cream cheese and 1/2 cup butter in a medium bowl, stirring well. Add 1 1/2 cups flour, stirring until smooth. Shape dough into a ball, and cover with plastic wrap. Chill dough for 1 hour.

Saute mushrooms and onion in 1 1/2 tablespoons butter in a heavy skillet over low heat until tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat, and stir in sour cream and next 3 ingredients. Set aside.

Brush edges of circle with egg, and fold dough in half, pressing to seal edges. Crimp edges, and prick top with a fork; brush tops with remaining egg.
