Roll dough 1/4" thick and cut it (using a pizza cutter) into 6-7" squares. Add a tablespoon of filling in the center, then folded the square in half to form a triangle.
Dip a finger in water and run it along the seam and press to close. Mix egg and water to create an egg wash and brush the tops of pastries using a pastry brush. Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake @ 400 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until golden.
This recipe will last for 2 days in the refrigerator before being rolled out a final time and baked.
