Cooling time: 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375˚F.
On a lightly floured surface, lay out pastry sheets. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough until both sheets are roughly 10″ x 12”.
With a sharp knife, cut each pastry sheet into 4 rectangles, creating 8 rectangles total.
On the right side of one pastry rectangle, lay a slice of turkey. Spread 1 Tbsp gravy over the turkey. Top with 1 Tbsp of stuffing, followed by 1 Tbsp of cranberry sauce. Brush edges of the pastry with egg wash, and then fold the left side of the pastry over the right, lining up the edges as best you can. Crimp shut the open edges with a fork to seal and use a sharp knife to mark 3 slits in the pastry. Repeat this step with the remaining pastry sheets, creating 8 hand pies total.
Brush the tops of the turnovers with remaining egg wash, then sprinkle with fresh thyme (optional).
Bake the hand pies for about 25 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and crispy.
Remove from oven and let cool on a cooling rack for 5 minutes.
Serve immediately alongside additional gravy and cranberry sauce for dipping.
