180g butter, cut into cubes and chilled
½ cup sour cream
1 tbsp olive oil
1 brown onion, finely chopped

Turn on to a lightly floured surface and lightly knead until smooth. Form into a flat disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.
Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease a 24cm pie pan. Heat butter and oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. When butter has melted and mixture is sizzling, add onion and carrot. Cook for 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Sprinkle flour over vegetables and stir until combined. Cook for 1 minute. Slowly add chicken stock and cream to pan, stirring constantly until well combined and mixture comes to the boil and thickens. Remove from heat and cool. Stir mustard, turkey, ham and parsley into sauce.

Cut a diamond pattern over surface of pastry, if desired, taking care not to cut through pastry. Brush surface of pie with egg wash. Bake for
30-35 minutes or until golden and pastry is cooked through.
