Wrap each chipolata in a piece of prosciutto. Now, working from the borderless side of the pastry rectangle roll each chipolata in pastry gently pressing egg glazed end down to seal. Repeat the process with the remaining chipolatas and place on prepared baking. Brush with remaining egg glaze and top with the sesame seeds and thyme. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill.
