  1. 1.

    Cut puff pastry in half and roll one half into a 12- by 12-inch square. Cut square into thirds in both directions to yield 9 (4- by 4-inch) squares. Place each square on a lined baking sheet then place 1 teaspoon each of peanut butter and jam in the center of each. Brush the edges with beaten egg, then fold the pastry over then filling and pinch the edges to seal. Repeat with remaining ingredients, using a separate lined baking sheet.
