Ingredients
For the pastry
  All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Neufchatel cream cheese 16 Ounce (2 Packages Of 8 Ounce Each)
  Unsalted butter/Margarine 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Cold water 2 Tablespoon
For the filling
  Unsalted butter/Margarine 1 Tablespoon
  Green onion with tops 2 , finely chopped to make 1/4 cup
  Shallots 2 Large, finely chopped to make 1/4 cup
  Skinless boneless chicken breasts 1 Pound, cooked and cubed to make 2 3/4 cups
  Chopped baked ham 2 Ounce (1/3 Cup)
  1% milk 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Minced parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Black pepper 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Non stick cooking spray 1
  Egg white 1 Large
  Cold water 1 Teaspoon
Directions

1. To prepare the pastry: In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the cream cheese and butter until coarse crumbs form. Stir in the water to form a dough, then wrap and chill for 1 hour.
2. To prepare the filling: In a small skillet, melt the butter over moderately high heat. Add the green onions and shallots and saute for 5 minutes or until tender. Spoon into a food processor with the chicken, ham, milk, parsley, pepper, and salt. Process 1 minute or until smooth.
3. Preheat the oven to 375 °F and spray 2 baking sheets with the cooking spray. On a floured surface, roll out the chilled pastry dough, 1/2 at a time, into a 16-inch circle, 1/8 inch thick. Using a 2 1/2-inch fluted round cutter, cut the dough into 48 circles. Spoon 1 tablespoon of filling on half of each pastry circle, then fold the pastry over, forming a semi-circle. Using the back of a fork, seal the edges, and place on the baking sheets. (If making ahead, refrigerate at this point.) In a cup, beat the egg white and water; brush on the pastries with a pastry brush. Bake for 20 minutes or until crisp. Serve hot.
