Let's Make It
Heat dressing in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onions; cook, stirring constantly, 7 to 8 min. or until mushrooms are tender. Spoon into medium bowl; set aside.
Brown beef in same skillet, stirring occasionally; drain. Return beef to skillet. Add mushroom mixture, taco seasoning mix and water; stir. Cook 5 min., stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Add cream cheese; stir until melted. Cool completely.
Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll one pie crust on lightly floured surface; cut into eight 4-inch rounds with biscuit cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Repeat with remaining pie crust.
Spoon about 2 Tbsp. beef mixture onto center of each pastry round. Brush edges of pastry rounds with some of the egg; fold in half. Seal edges with fork.
Place on parchment-covered baking sheet; brush with remaining egg.
Bake 18 to 20 min. or until golden brown.
