Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Sprinkle flour on a countertop.
Roll out the puff pastry into a thin rectangle.
Use a knife to cut the dough into the same number of pieces as the number of mini hotdogs.
Cut the Gruyere into little squares. You will probably have some left over.

Combine spices in a bowl.
Sprinkle the spices on top of the hot dogs.
Beat the egg in a small bowl.
Brush the beaten egg on the edges of the puff pastry squares.
