14×12-inch rectangle. Cut rectangle in half crosswise to make two 12×7-inch rectangles. In a small bowl, combine egg and the water. Brush pastry rectangles lightly with egg mixture.
- Sprinkle one of the pastry rectangles with cheese. Place second pastry rectangle, brushed side down, on top of cheese. Using your fingers, press rectangles firmly together, forcing out air pockets and sealing edges. Brush top with egg mixture.
