Using a large round cutter that is just smaller than the opening of your serving bowls, cut out 4 circles of dough and place on prepared baking sheet. Using a small cutter or a knife, cut several holes or vents in the center of each pastry round. Brush surface with egg wash and bake until pastry is puffed and top is deep golden about 15 minutes.
