Red and Black Currant Parsels

Looking for something warm and delicious to make on a chilly Sunday morning for the "leaf collection" department, as he's working hard outside. I settled on puff pastry. I wanted something E could help with and so making berry parcels seemed like a good idea. She helped mix the filling, roll the pastry, fill and paint the parcels with egg wash (this was her favorite part).

To make 3 parcels, mix the following for the filling:
1/2 cup black currant
1/2 cup red currant
1 tbsp flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp butter, chopped into small bits

Roll out 3 puff pastry rounds into 6 inch, thin rounds.

Fill each center with 1/3 of the filling, pinch together. Paint with egg wash. Bake on 375F for 25-30 minutes, until puff pastry is golden in color. Cool on a rack until warm, not hot inside.
