Creamy Stuffed Pastry Bites

These are a warm, delicious side for your next holiday meal! Use a fork to seal the pastry edges, it adds a decorative edge and prevents the filling from coming out.

4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup finely chopped cooked turkey or chicken
2 green onions, sliced
1/2 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper
1 pkg. (17-1/4 oz.) frozen puff pastry (2 sheets), thawed
1 egg
1 Tbsp. milk

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Mix cream cheese, turkey, onions and parsley until well blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

PLACE pastry sheets on cutting board. Cut out 22 circles from each pastry sheet, using a 2-inch round cutter. Beat egg and milk with wire whisk until well blended.

SPOON 1 tsp. of the turkey mixture onto center of each pastry circle. Brush edge of pastry with egg mixture. Fold pastry in half to completely enclose filling; press edges together to seal. Place on baking sheet; brush tops with remaining egg mixture.

BAKE 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
