MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2013

I've made this a number of times since seeing your recipe and it's delicious every time! It was a perfect treat for my women's Bible study group and then a baby shower and Easter brunch. Today I made them to bring to a potluck dinner where I wanted something meatless. They're a little tricky to assemble (have to get the roll dough to press shut without squeezing out the cream cheese) but they're worth a little trouble. When I don't have pimento, I substitute with finely chopped red pepper. I never have used 1 lb. of asparagus - half that, maybe. Any leftover cream cheese and asparagus is great on a bagel, too. Thanks for a great recipe!
