  • Arrange one half of sheet with a long side facing you and brush edge of far side with some egg.
  • Arrange half of prosciutto evenly on top of pastry, avoiding egg-brushed edge, and top with half of Gruyère mixture.

  • Chill pastry logs, seam sides down, until firm, at least 3 hours, and up to 3 days.
  • Preheat oven to 400F and grease 2 baking sheets.
  • Cut logs crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick pinwheels and arrange, cut sides down, 1 inch apart on baking sheets.
