Cheese Puffs with Bacon

1 container whipped cream cheese, 4 ounces 
1 egg 
1 teaspoon lemon juice 
1 teaspoon fresh or frozen chopped chives 
dash black pepper 
1/2 cup shredded sharp natural Cheddar cheese 
4 slices bacon, cooked, drained, and crumbled 
4 frozen patty shells, thawed 

In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, egg, lemon juice, chives, and a dash of pepper; beat well. Stir in shredded Cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon. Chill thoroughly. 

Roll out on of the patty shells to an 8-x4-inch rectangle. Cut pastry into 2-inch squares. Top each square with a rounded teaspoon of the cheese filling. Brush edges with milk then fold to form a triangle. Seal edges. 

Place on ungreased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining patty shells and filling. When all triangles are made, chill until ready to bake. 

Preheat oven to 450. Reduce heat to 400 as soon as you place the baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
