Method

 
To make pastry
Beat together cream cheese and sugar until fluffy.
Beat in egg yolk and milk, then sift in flour, a pinch of salt and baking powder.
Form into a smooth dough, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
To make filling
Place all ingredients in a food processor.
Process in short bursts until finely chopped (or mix thoroughly by hand or use a potato masher).
Preheat oven to 180 °C.
Divide filling into three rolls and roll these into 32 cm long ropes.
Divide pastry into three and, on a lightly floured surface, roll out to 10 cm x 32 cm rectangles.
Brush one length of a rectangle with water.
Lay a portion of filling on a strip of pastry near the dry side.
Roll pastry over and press to seal, then cut into eight diagonal pieces and lay, seam-side down, on an ungreased baking tray.
Repeat with remaining pastry and filling.
Mix egg white with 5 ml cold water and glaze biscuits.
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
Leave for 2 to 3 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.
