  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Steam broccoli in microwave according to package directions; let stand 3 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together mac & cheese, jalapeños, Pepper Jack cheese, Cheddar cheese and milk in large bowl just until combined. Stir in broccoli.
  3. Divide mac & cheese mixture between 6 individual round baking dishes. Beat together egg and water to make egg wash.
  4. Cut puff pastry into 6 circles, slightly larger than top of each baking dish. Brush outer edge of each circle with egg wash. Place egg wash side DOWN on dish; lightly press pastry to edge of dishes. Brush top of crusts with additional egg wash. Cut slit in top of each crust for steam to escape. Place baking dishes on baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is hot.

Cook's Tip

To make a decorative edge on each crust, take a 1/2-inch wide strip of pastry, twist and press on top edge of each pie. Brush entire top with egg wash.
