Step:

  1. Cut the kabocha into bite-sized pieces with the skin still attached. Cut off 1 cm corners for decorative purposes and place into a separate heat-resistant container.

  6. Cut a puff pastry into 4 sheets. Use two of the pieces to create a 7 cm round sheet. You can use a cup to help.

  7. Use a fork to punch shallow holes in the remaining two puff pastry. Trace egg whites around the border of the sheets, then place the sheets with the holes removed (created in Step 6) on top of the whole sheets.

  8. Use a fork to punch shallow holes in the bottom layer of the round puff pastry. Add the filling and trace the edges with egg whites. Add the top cover sheet, and use a knife to cut slits in the sides to prevent the filling from spilling out.

  9. Repeat Steps 6-8 with the other puff pastry. Apply egg yoke to the top, careful not to let any on the sides of the sheets (it'll prevent the sheets from inflating).
