  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Line two 15 x 10-inch baking pans with parchment paper.

  3. Brush pastries with egg wash. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly on a wire rack.
  4. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually whisk in milk and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil; cook and whisk for 2 minutes or until thickened.
