  1. To make dough, a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, salt and thyme. Add the butter and pulse for a few seconds at a time until the butter is the size of peas. Add water (1 tablespoon at a time) as needed, until dough just comes together and is moist (not wet and sticky or too crumbly). Remove the dough from the food processor and form two discs. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour.
  2. To make gravy, melt butter in a 1-quart saucepan set over medium heat. Add flour to pan and stir to incorporate and form a roux. Continue to stir until roux begins to lightly brown, 3-4 minutes. Add broth, ½ cup at a time, whisking to combine until all the broth has been incorporated, season with salt and pepper, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and continue to cook until sauce has reduced, and no floury taste remains, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside until ready to add to filling.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  4. To make filling, in a large, deep-sided skillet over medium heat, melt butter and add mushrooms and sauté flipping once for 4 minutes, add onions, celery and carrots and cook until softened, 5 minutes. Add garlic and thyme, cook for 4 minutes more. In a mixing bowl, fold diced Lilydale®Oven Roasted Carved Turkey Breast into gravy add peas, then mix into skillet, season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove skillet from heat and let cool until ready to assemble.
  5. To assemble, roll out the first disc of dough on a floured work surface or between two sheets of parchment paper into a 1/8” thick sheet. Place into a greased (with butter), shallow 9" pie dish (or 2 qt, 10 ½” x 8″ rectangular roaster/baking dish). Trim edges to leave a 1" overhang and then add cooled filling. Brush edges with egg wash. Roll out second disk of dough into a large round (or rectangle) about 1/8” thick and place on top of filling. Trim and crimp edges, then use a paring knife to create slits on top. Brush with remaining egg wash and sprinkle with flaky salt.Get creative - use a leaf cutter to decorate the top of your pie or cut dough into long strips and make a lattice pattern… have fun and experiment with different tops!
  6. Bake pie in the middle of the oven, until crust is golden, and filling is bubbling, about 45 minutes. When the edges of the pie start to darken (about 10 minutes), cover edges with foil.
  7. Let pie cool for 15 minutes before serving. To serve, lightly sprinkle with fresh chopped thyme.
