1 egg
1 tablespoon water

Using a lightly floured flat surface, roll out the puff pastry into about a 14-inch square.

Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese into the center of each of the cut squares.

Step 7

Mix together the egg and water using a whisk.

Step 8

Lightly brush over the edges of the puff pastry with the egg wash mixture.
