Cheese Stuffed Pastry

Lyn inspire me to create this dish. Actually last night I was making a chicken empanada with raisins and also I'm baking stuffed jalapenos. I have extra dough and extra filling for the jalapeno. I think I can use the jalapeno filling to fill my dough.
Cheese stuffed pastry was born and it is really good.

Filling; 6oz cream cheese room temp., 1 cup cheddar cheese room temp, 1 scallion chop. Mix filling ingredients and set aside.
Pastry; 2 cups flour, 1 egg beaten, 1/2 cup water, 1 stick butter melted, 1 tbsp granulated sugar, 1/2 cup flour for dusting.
1 cup cooking oil for frying.
Beat egg in a mixing bowl add water, melted butter and sugar mix well, add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth. divide dough in 12 equal size or if you prepare smaller pieces divide dough in 16 equal size.
Using rolling pin form dough into round flatten pastry then fill with 1 tbsp mixture. Brush side with egg white and seal. Fry until golden brown. Enjoy
