DIRECTIONS:Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk one egg yolk and set aside. Roll out your puff pastry on a floured work surface. Poke holes with a fork to prevent too much puffing up. Cut the puff pastry in half. Repeat with the rest of the pastry to make 6 in total. Cook the macaroni until al dente.
To make the cheese sauce, melt some butter in a frying pan. Add the flour and cook until thickened, stirring continuously. Add the cheese and cook until smooth and the cheese is melted. Add the macaroni, ham, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Fill the pastry puffs with about 2-3 tbsp of macaroni and cheese. Fold in half. Secure the edges by pressing with a fork. Place the pies onto a baking sheet. Brush them with the egg wash. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
