Let's Make It
Cook and stir bacon in medium skillet on medium heat 5 min. (Bacon should not be cooked until crisp.) Drain and discard drippings from skillet. Add onions and garlic to bacon in skillet; cook and stir 4 min. or until bacon is crisp. Drain bacon mixture; return to skillet. Stir in chiles and cheese; cool.
Heat oven to 400°F. Roll out pastry on lightly floured surface to 11-inch square; cut into 12 smaller squares. Brush edges of each square lightly with egg.
Spoon about 1 Tbsp. bacon mixture onto center of each pastry square; fold diagonally in half. Press gently on tops to remove excess air; seal edges with fork. Bend slightly to resemble half moons. Make small cut in top of each to vent steam. Place on parchment-covered baking sheet; brush with any remaining egg.
Bake 20 min. or until golden brown.
