Cape Fear Wellington.
NOTES Before Beginning Recipe:
Follow the thawing instructions on the pastry package carefully.
If the dough becomes soft, place it in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
It is best for the dough to be well chilled but not stiff.
I suggest mixing one egg white and two tablespoons of water
together and spreading it over each pastry with a pastry brush.
This gives the pastry a beautiful golden finish.
