Description

These tasty bundles are easy and fun to make. If you’ve got puff pastry in the freezer, you’ve got what you need to make just about any delicious appetizers!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 bunch (about 2025) fresh asparagus
  • 8 pieces of thin prosciutto
  • 1 package of puff pastry* (I prefer the Dufour brand) thawed overnight
  • Flour for dusting the board

Not paid or endorsed by Dofour, but I should be!


Instructions

  1. Trim** about 1″ off the bottom ends of the asparagus. This is to get rid of the tough stems.
  2. Place the puff pastry on a lightly floured cutting board. Using a pastry cutter, pizza cutter, or sharp chef’s knife. Cut the pastry into long 1/2″ strips.
  3. With a sharp knife, cut the prosciutto lengthwise in three strips. Place a prosciutto strip on top of the puff pastry strip. Starting at the bottom of the asparagus, roll the up like a candy cane. Line them up like little soldiers on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Preheat oven to 425°. While oven is preheating, place the baking sheet of apps in the freezer. When oven is hot, bake the appetizers for about 20 minutes, remove from oven and serve on a pretty serving platter.


Notes

*Puff pastry is so much better when made with real butter. It’s a bit more expensive but well worth it.

*Another great way to trim the asparagus is to snap it at the bottom. Asparagus seems to know where to snap, and you are guaranteed no tough stems.
