Ham and Cheese Slab Pies

Ingredients
2
3 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
2
tablespoons honey mustard
1
17.3 ounce package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed (2 sheets)
6
ounces thinly sliced Black Forest ham
1/2
of a medium red onion, thinly sliced
6
ounces thinly sliced Gruyere, Swiss, or cheddar cheese
1
egg
1
tablespoon water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a small bowl stir together cream cheese and mustard. On a lightly floured surface roll each sheet of thawed puff pastry into a 15x12-inch rectangle. Transfer each pastry sheet to a prepared baking sheet; spread half of each pastry lengthwise with cream cheese mixture, leaving a 1/2-inch border around outside edges.
  2. Add individual layers of ham, onion, and Gruyere cheese over cream cheese layer, leaving a 1/2-inch border around outside edges. In a small bowl whisk together egg and the water. Brush some of the egg mixture on the uncovered edges of the pastries. Fold uncovered portion of each pastry rectangle up and over filling. Use a fork to seal edges together. Brush tops with egg mixture. Cut decorative slits in top of each pastry for steam to escape.
  3. Bake about 25 minutes or until pastries are golden on both the top and bottom. If top browns more quickly than the bottom, cover with foil. Slide pies and parchment paper onto wire racks; cool slightly. To serve, cut crosswise into strips.

Make-Ahead Directions:

Prepare as directed through Step 2, except do not preheat oven and do not brush tops of pies with egg mixture. Freeze pies on parchment paper-lined baking pans until firm. Wrap pies tightly with plastic wrap; overwrap with foil. Label and freeze for up to 2 months. To serve, thaw in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Brush with egg mixture; bake and cool as directed.
