Recipe for Quick Puff Pastry

Line baking sheet with parchment paper or leave ungreased; set aside.

In large bowl, mix eggs, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, parsley, fennel seeds, orange rind, salt, coriander and pepper; mix in lamb. Set aside.

Divide pastry in half. On lightly floured surface, roll out each half into 10-inch (25 cm) square; cut each into 3 equal strips. Brush with mustard. Evenly spoon filling along center of each strip. Fold pastry over filling; press edge to seal.

Arrange rolls, seam side down, on prepared pan. Cover and chill until firm, about 25 minutes. On board, cut each roll into 10 pieces; return to pan. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and freeze for up to 2 weeks.)

In small bowl, whisk egg yolk with 1 tbsp (1 mL) water; brush over rolls. Bake in 450 F (230 C) oven until puffed and golden about 20 minutes, 25 minutes if frozen.
