Certainly you already know my love affair with puff pastry. I think she is, to a home cook, the most delightful friend Always ready to please easy to keep around ever impressive to your other friends. Yes, she is simply the one you want available to you at all times!
  Frozen puff pastry 16 Ounce, defrosted according to package directions (1 Package)
For crabmeat filling
  Grated gruyere cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), grated
  Marinated artichoke hearts 4 Ounce, drained (1 Jar)
  Mayonnaise 1⁄8 Cup (2 tbs)
  Cream cheese 4 Ounce, softened
  Worcestershire sauce 1 Teaspoon
  Tabasco 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Shredded parmesan 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Canned crabmeat 4 Ounce, drained and picked through
  Kosher salt To Taste
  Freshly cracked pepper To Taste
  Beaten egg 1 , with 1 tablespoon water (To Brush The Top Of Pastry)

Put all ingredients (except egg and pastry) into food processor. Whirl it about for 30-40 seconds, or until pretty finely chopped.

Unfold 1 sheet of thawed puff pastry and place it on a lightly floured board. With a rolling pin, lightly roll dough until about 1/8 inch thick, approx. 13€³. Spread crabmeat filling on top of dough. You can take it right to the edge. Make a mark on the center of the dough coming down from short ends. Roll one side of dough up to the middle mark, roll other side of dough to meet the first side, continue with another roll until the two sides come together (think 2 little jelly rolls). Brush a bit of egg wash at the point where they meet to hold them together. Wrap the roll tightly in plastic and freeze for 40 minutes.

Remove rolled dough from freezer. Slice the dough into 1/4 inch slices and place the slices onto cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper. Do not leave dough sitting around for anytime, it must go immediately into the oven, or a refrigerator to keep cool until you bake it. Brush each piece with egg wash and place in the oven. Bake for 18-20 minutes in a 400F oven.
