Using a very sharp knife, cut 12 equal slices from the chilled pastry log, laying each one in a prepared muffin hole or on prepared baking tray. Brush the tops of each pinwheel with the egg glaze.

Place muffin tray in preheated oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until pastry puffed and golden. Leave to stand for at least 15 minutes before serving, to allow the cheese to cool.
