1 egg

1 tablespoon water

2 tablespoons flour

1 package puff pastry sheets, thawed

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

2 tablespoons sugar plus more for decorating

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1 package raspberries

Heat the oven to 400F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.

Sprinkle the flour on the work surface. Unfold one pastry sheet on the work surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Using a round cutter, cut 12 (3-inch) circles. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.

Stir the cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of the sugar in a medium bowl until the mixture is smooth. Stir in the white chocolate chips.

Brush the edges of 12 pastry circles with the egg mixture. Place about 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture in the center of each. Top with 1 to 3 raspberries. Place the remaining pastry circles over the filling. Press the edges firmly to seal. Crimp the edges with a fork. Brush the pastries with the egg mixture and sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Using a sharp knife, cut a small slit in the top of the filled pastries. Place onto baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.



Heat oven to 350F. In a medium bowl, combine 2 lightly beaten eggs with 1 3/4 cups eggnog, 2 tablespoons bourbon, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Whisk until well combined. Pour into crust, bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Refrigerate at least an hour before serving.
