Cream Cheese & Parmesan Asparagus Spears

ingredients for cream cheese and parmesan asparagus spears

Puff pastry, fresh asparagus, cream cheese, Parmesan, and egg are all the ingredients you need to make this crowd pleaser. If helps if the cream cheese is at room temperature, but the puff pastry rolls out better if it’s cold.

prepping the asparagus spears

To make these delicious little spears, roll out the puff pastry, spread cream cheese on it, and cut it into thin strips. Trim the bottom of the asparagus, and peel a little bit if the spears are really fat.  Then, simple roll one sprig of asparagus around the puff pastry. Once all of the pasty is used, brush a little egg on the spears, and then sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown.

  1. This cake looks so yummy. I am watching my sugar content, so I think I would leave off the icing. I love the raspberries in the cake. We get them from our CSA and have elsie in the freezer - I will need to make this!
