  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Roll up the squares and seal all the edges so that the cheese does not leak out.

  • Bake for 15 or until the tops are golden brown.
  • Enjoy.
