Cover with remaining cream cheese piece; spread top with remaining 1 Tbsp. pesto. Brush dough with egg; fold in half to completely enclose filling. Press edges of dough firmly together to seal. Brush top with any remaining egg.

    I tried this recipe at a friends' house and loved it. I just made it for my friends and they all went crazy over it. They figured it was complicated to make and couldn't believe when I told them how easy it is. I was in a rush so I did not put the filling but it was still great.

    Looks and tastes like a lot of work - so easy and everyone loves it. I use neufchatel cream cheese for a light and creamy texture!
