Will these keep if frozen - for how long?

I found a cheese fatayer recipe online, and wondering if I can make extra and if they will be ok if frozen. The recipe and link are below. Thank you!

Will make about 45

The pastry:

80g butter melted
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup water
2 cups plain flour
1 egg lightly beaten
Cheese filling:

1 cup grated feta cheese
1 cup white creamed cheese
2tbs chopped parsley
1tsp lemon juice

** Important **

When using fresh vegetables and herbs, make sure they are washed thoroughly and drained.

To make the cheese filling: Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

To make the pastry: Combine butter, oil and water in bowl. Add sifted flour, 1tbs at a time, stirring to a smooth paste between additions. Continue adding the flour until a soft dough is formed. Turn dough onto floured surface, knead gently until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Divide pastry in half; roll each half between sheets of cling film until very thin. Use a cutter or teacup. Cut circles from the pastry (you can make them bigger if you like) Drop 1 tsp of filling into the centre of each circle. Fold over and pinch edges together to seal. Place pastries on greased oven trays and brush with egg. Bake in a moderately hot oven for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

I don't see why not. The filling is very much like my Spanokopita recipe and they freeze beautifully.

I would freeze them uncooked and then cook from frozen. I would not thaw before cooking.
