Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat, and saute the onions until they are tender. Add the garlic and saute for another minute. 

Add the spinach and cook for 5 minutes. Add the herbs, cheese, and lemon juice. Mix well. Transfer mixture to a bowl. 

Whisk the egg and add all but one Tablespoon of  it to the spinach mixture, mixing well. 

Roll out the puff pastry dough. Cut each sheet of dough into small 2 to 3 inch squares. Spoon a small amount (1 teaspoon, maybe) into the center of each square. Bring the corners of the square together and pinch/twist so they will stay. 

Place the bundles/money bags on a baking sheet. Use the remaining 1 T of egg to brush the tops of the bundles. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden on the top.

ENJOY!
