When the first asparagus of the season appears, we serve it rolled inside puff pastry with a yummy cheese filling. Our guests always compliment these lovely treats. —Cindy Jamieson, Tonawanda, New York

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons water

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, bring 1-1/2 in. of water to a boil. Add asparagus; cook, uncovered, 1-3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove asparagus and immediately drop into ice water. Drain and pat dry.
In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper until blended. Unfold puff pastry sheets; cut each sheet in half to make a total of four rectangles. Spread each rectangle with a fourth of the cream cheese mixture to within 1/4 in. of edges. Arrange asparagus over top, allowing tips to show at each end; roll up jelly-roll style. Using a serrated knife, cut each roll crosswise into four sections.
Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, seam side down. In a small bowl, whisk egg with water until blended; brush lightly over tops.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack; serve warm. Yield: 16 servings.

"This was very yummy! The cream cheese mixture wasn't overpowering, it was subtle. This would be great as an appetizer to a party. We actually made this as a main dish for a meatless Monday meal. I paired it with butter herbed noodles. I only did half the recipe for my husband and I for dinner. I also used spicy brown mustard instead of stone ground because I didn't want to buy a whole thing of stone ground for just 1 recipe. Seemed to work out just fine. If you're a fan of asparagus, definitely give this a try!"
