How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork. 

Step 2

Sprinkle the flour on the work surface.  Unfold 1 pastry sheet on the work surface.  Using a round cutter, cut the pastry sheet into 9 (3-inch) circles.  Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.

Step 3

Place about 1 tablespoon corned beef in the center of each pastry circle. Top each with 1 teaspoon each sauerkraut and cheese.  Fold the pastries over the filling and crimp the edges with a fork to seal.  Place the pastries onto the baking sheets.  Brush the pastries with the egg mixture.

Step 4

Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Let the pastries cool on the baking sheets on wire racks for 10 minutes.  Serve with the dressing for dipping.

Recipe Tips

  • Recipe Note: Parchment paper keeps the pastry from sticking to the baking sheet and also makes for easier cleanup. If you don't have parchment paper, you can spray the baking sheet with cooking spray instead. However, cooking spray may cause the bottoms of the pastries to brown more quickly, so begin checking for doneness 5 minutes early.
  • Make-Ahead: To make ahead, do not prepare the egg mixture.  Cover and freeze the unbaked pastries on the baking sheets until firm.  Remove the pastries from the baking sheets and store in a gallon-size resealable plastic bag in the freezer for up to 1 month.  Before baking, prepare the egg mixture.  Place the pastries onto baking sheets and brush with the egg mixture.  Bake as directed above.
