Look for Manchego—a mild and nutty sheep's milk cheese from Spain—at specialty cheese counters. Its crosshatched pattern on the rind makes it easy to spot.
1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil; set aside. In a small bowl whisk together egg and the water; set aside. On a lightly floured surface unfold pastry. Brush with egg mixture. Cover and refrigerate remaining egg mixture.
2. In a bowl combine Manchego cheese, pepper, and arugula. Spread evenly over pastry. Roll up pastry starting with a short side. Wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes or for up to 2 hours.
3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Slice the pastry crosswise into 15 slices that are a little thicker than 1/2 inch each. Place slices, cut sides up, on prepared baking sheet; brush tops with egg mixture. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
