These attractive appetizers from Donna Folk of Berwick, Pennsylvania are easy to prepare but look like you fussed. A creamy filling and crunchy sesame seeds complement the fresh flavor of the asparagus.

"These always get rave reviews from friends. I add chopped fresh herbs to the cheeses. One dozen is rarely enough!"
