Cheese 'n Ham Spirals

1 egg
1 TBS. water
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (half of 17 1/4 oz. pkg.), thawed
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
8 slices brown sugared ham

Preheat oven to 400. Beat egg and water until blended; set aside. Unfold pastry on lightly floured surface. Roll into 14X10 inch rectangle; cut in half lengthwise. Brush both pastry halves lightly with some of the egg mixture. Sprinkle 3 TBS. of the cheese and the pepper evenly over one of the pastry pieces; cover with ham slices. Place remaining pastry piece, egg-side down, over ham. Roll gently with rolling pin to seal. Brush with additional egg mixture.
Roll up tightly to form a 14-inch log, starting at one of the long sides. Cut log crosswise into 24 slices. Place, cut side down, on parchment covered baking sheet. Brush with remaining egg mixture; sprinkle with remaining 1 TBS cheese.

Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
