    Preheat the oven to 180°/360°F. Place a sheet of puff pastry onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place the filling in the center of the puff pastry, leaving approx. 2 - 3 cm / 1-in. free around all sides. Place the remaining sheet of puff pastry over the mixture and close the sides well with your fingers or a fork. Whisk egg in a small bowl and brush over the puff pastry. Transfer to a preheated oven and bake until golden brown, approx. 30 mins. Slice and enjoy!
