1 tbsp milk

Strawberry rose puff pastry flowers:
Cut puff pastry into 9 equal squares. Make a cut on each side of the square leaving a 2cm space in the middle. Place 1 tsp cream cheese mixture and 1 tsp strawberry jam in the middle of the pastry. Fold in triangles and press down lightly. Pinch together the sides of each triangle to make flower petals. Place a strawberry in the middle of the flower. Transfer the flowers to the baking tray. Brush with egg wash. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
Dust with powdered (icing) sugar if you like.
