Tomato and Cream Cheese Turnovers


I originally was thinking of making strawberry cream cheese croissant turnover thingies, but I had a feeling they wouldn't live up to a beautiful childhood memory I have of eating a strawberry cream cheese croissant, so I decided to veer in a different direction -- a savory direction with tomatoes and sesame seeds. These are kind of a like a sesame bagel with cream cheese and tomato, but on steroids. As with anything using puff pastry, these appear kind of fancy, but are quite easy and fast to make (if you have prepared puff pastry), so they're a great thing to whip up for a last-minute brunch dish.

What you will need

6 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

2 large eggs (one is for an egg wash)

Salt and pepper

2 sheets of all-butter puff pastry dough, defrosted

1 large tomato, sliced in 1/4-inch thick slices

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Flour, for dusting
