Here is a recipe from Mmm…Cafe blog! I thought they looked delicious and boy, were they! They were awesome. And I know, the maple syrup will sound weird to put on it… but do it. Because if you don’t, you are missing out!

1  egg

1 sheet Puff Pastry, thawed

4 thin slices deli Black Forest ham

4 slices deli Swiss cheese (about 4 ounces)

Confectioners’ sugar

Pure maple syrup

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Beat the egg in a small bowl with a fork.
Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface.  Cut the pastry in half, diagnally to create two large triangles. Brush the edges of the pastries with egg.
With a corner of 1 pastry facing you, place 2 slices ham and 1 slice cheese on the bottom half of the pastry.  Fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle and press the edges to seal.  Crimp the edges with a fork.  Repeat with the remaining pastry.  Brush the top of the pastries with the egg mixture.  Place the pastries onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Sprinkle the pastries with the confectioners’ sugar.  Serve with the maple syrup.
