Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Beat 1 of the eggs and water in small bowl. Set aside. Mix remaining egg, sausage, apple, bread crumbs, cranberries, onion, rosemary and cinnamon in large bowl until well blended.

Unfold puff pastry on lightly floured surface. Cut lengthwise into 2 rectangles. Cut strips 1 inch apart and 1 1/2 inches across down long sides of each pastry rectangle. Spoon 1/2 of the sausage mixture down center of each pastry rectangle. Fold over 1 pastry strip at a time, alternating sides, to enclose sausage mixture. Place pastry on baking sheet. Brush with egg mixture.

Bake 35 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and sausage is cooked through. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes. Cut each pastry into 6 pieces to serve
