Ham and Brie Puff

1 pkg (17 1/4oz) frozen puff pastry thawed
1/4 lb thin sliced ham
1/4 lb brie cheese cut in 1/4" slices
Pepper to taste
1 egg slightly beaten

Preheat oven to 425.

On lightly floured surface, roll each sheet to 12x10" rectangles. Trim 1/2" for border from each sheet. Reserve trim. Lay 1 sheet on ungreased baking sheet, top with ham and cheese, leaving a 1" border all around. Sprinkle with pepper. Brush border with beaten egg. Top with remaining pastry. Trim and crimp to seal. Brush with egg. Re-roll the trimmings for decorations. Place them on the top and brush with egg.

Chill 15 min, or overnight, covered. Prick in a few places for steam. Bake 15 min. till puffed and golden. Cool 10-30 min before cutting. Remember to serve with napkins!
