Meanwhile, heat oven to 425 degrees; have ready four 8″ oval gratin
dishes.

If using homemade pastry, roll out on lightly floured surface to 1/8″
thickness; or unfold all-ready piecrusts. Using bottom of one gratin dish
as pattern, cut out 1 “lids”; cut out small hole in center of each and
several slits as vents for steam. Arrange on ungreased large cookie
sheet; brush with egg-yolk mixture (1 egg yolk and 1 Tbsp. water). Bake
10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned.

In small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter; add flour; stir until
smooth. Cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently; remove from heat. Stir
mixture gradually into vegetables simmering in skillet; cook 2 to 3
minutes longer, stirring occasionally until thickened. Stir in peas and
turkey; remove from heat.

Spoon mixture into gratin dishes, dividing evenly. Place pastry lid on
top of each; bake 5 to 10 minutes until filling is heated through.
