    Cut 6 x 110cm diameter and 6 x 95mm diameter discs from the puff pastry rolls. Place a spoonful of the filling in the centre of each small disc and then brush the edges with a little beaten egg (add a little water to the beaten egg). Cover with a larger disc of pastry and press the pastry edges together to seal. Brush the pastry with the beaten egg and place on a baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and cook for about 15 minutes until golden.
