Ham and Cheese Puffs
1 Tbsp. water
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (1/2 of 17-1/4-oz. pkg.), thawed
1/4 cup KRAFT 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne)
8 slices OSCAR MAYER Shaved Smoked or Brown Sugar Ham
PREHEAT oven to 400°F.
Beat egg and water until blended; set aside. Unfold pastry on lightly floured surface.
Roll into 14x10-inch rectangle; cut in half lengthwise.
Brush both pastry halves lightly with some of the egg mixture.
Sprinkle 3 Tbsp. of the cheese and the pepper evenly over one of the pastry pieces; cover with ham slices.
Place remaining pastry piece, egg-side down, over ham.
Roll gently with rolling pin to seal.
Brush with additional egg mixture.
ROLL up tightly to form a 14-inch log, starting at one of the long sides.
Cut log crosswise into 24 slices.
Place, cut-sides down, on parchment-covered baking sheet.
Brush with remaining egg mixture; sprinkle with remaining 1 Tbsp. cheese.
BAKE 12 to 14 min. or until golden brown.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
I serve them with honey mustard dipping sauce.
