Since asparagus is so plentiful the time of year, I thought I would post this wonderful looking hors d’oeuvres recipe. It comes from the Pepperidge Farm website. Don’t you just love that company?
Prosciutto Asparagus Spirals
1 package Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed
6 Tbs garlic & herb spreadable cheese, softened
8 slices prosciutto
30 medium asparagus spears, trimmed
Heat the oven to 400°F. Unfold the pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Spread 3 tablespoons cheese on each pastry sheet. Top each with 4 slices prosciutto. Cut each into 15 strips crosswise, making 30 in all.
Tightly wrap 1 pastry strip around each asparagus spear, prosciutto-side in. Place the pastries seam-side down onto 2 baking sheets.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.
