How to prepare tomino cheese in a puff pastry crust
To prepare tomino cheese in a puff pastry crust, lay out a slice of ham on a worktop, place a tomino cheese on one end 1 and wrap it in the slice of ham 2. Repeat with the other 3 tomino cheeses. Now unroll the puff pastry and divide it into 4 strips, each 3 inches wide, measuring from the longer side of the rectangle 3.
Place the tomino cheese wrapped in the ham at the end of a puff pastry strip, season with a few thyme leaves 4 and a grating of pepper 5. Roll the tomino cheese in the puff pastry 6.
Lastly, seal the edges by pressing down with your fingers 7. Repeat for the other 3 tomino cheeses. Place the bundles on an oven tray lined with parchment paper, beat the yolk and cream together and brush over the resulting turnovers 8. Cut 3 incisions into the surface of the puff pastry using a knife 9.
Lastly, season with few thyme leaves 10 and some ground pepper to taste. Bake the pasta in a static oven preheated to 375°F (190°C) for 25 minutes on the middle shelf, or until the puff pastry becomes nice and golden 11. Serve your tomino cheese bundles in a puff pastry crust immediately and enjoy them while they're still hot 12!
Tomino cheese in a puff pastry crust can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one day.

You can replace cooked ham with other deli meat of your choice, or, for a vegetarian version, with some thinly sliced zucchini.
