  1. Thaw the pastry sheets at room temperature for 40 minutes or until they're easy to handle.
  2. Unfold 1 pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 15x10-inch rectangle. Cut the pastry rectangle lengthwise into 3 (5x10-inch) rectangles. Brush the pastry rectangles with the egg. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.
  3. Spread 1 tablespoon cream cheese on the bottom half of each pastry rectangle. Top each with about 3 slices ham,about 2 tablespoons arugula leaves and 2 slices nectarine. Fold the top halves over the filling and press the edges to seal.
  4. Place each pastry packet one at a time into a panini maker and close the top. Cook for 6 minutes or until the panini is golden. Remove the panini to a baking sheet and keep warm in a 275 degrees F. oven while the remaining paninis are cooked.

I don't have a panini maker, but my waffle maker has a sandwich maker attachment that I'd never used before. I figured this recipe was perfect to try the sandwich maker out on. The dough yielded 4 sandwiches (as opposed to 3 paninis). I couldn't fit anywhere close to all ingredients into the pans, so I had to adjust down and eyeball quantities to what fit. The sandwiches are really good. My husband thinks a little fig jam would make them 5 stars. We'll try that next time. Oh, and i want to mention the egg. I was not sure if I was supposed to put egg on both sides or just one, so I did both. The egg made a lovely golden, crispy coating on the dough. On the inside, it was like a thin layer of scrambled eggs, which you couldn't taste at all. I guess I was supposed to only put the egg on the outside.
