Ingredients
  1. 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (half a 17.25-ounce package), thawed but still cold.
  2. 4oz Roquefort blue cheese
  3. 1 large egg, lightly beaten with 1 teaspoon cold water
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Butter a rimmed baking sheet or use a Silpat.
  3. Open the sheet of puff pastry and flatten with a rolling pin. Crumble the blue cheese on the sheet, leaving a good inch-wide border all around.
  4. Roll up the pastry the long way; cut into twelve to fourteen ½-inch-thick slices with a sharp knife.
  5. After you cut them you will have to shape the exteriors so that they become round.
  6. Place the rounds in the prepared dish; brush with egg wash.
  7. Bake until puffed up and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
Notes
  1. I double this recipe and use the whole sheet of puff pastry.
  2. You can freeze the ones you don't want to bake immediately on a tray and then store in a freezer bag.
  3. Do not defrost, but brush them with the egg mixture and bake them in the oven. It will take a bit longer thatn the recommended 10-12 minutes.
  4. Do not let your pastry thaw at room temperature unless you are using it immediately.
