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. Β 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. By the way, if you need a nice baking sheet, I love these half baking sheets from Nordic Ware! I use them for everything – love them for sheet pan dinners. My favorite micro-plane also comes in very handy, as does this pizza cutter.asparagus spears

    These are so pretty!!! I love asparagus and tried to make something similar once using crescent rolls, but they were gross… I guess I don’t like crescent rolls! πŸ˜› I will have to try the puff pastry next time. Yummy! They look like unicorn horns!

    Oh I know! I bought my first asparagus a couple of weeks ago and was SO excited. I love these rolled spears!!! With as much asparagus that we eat this time of year, I too, like to mix things up. Thanks for sharing such a great treat!

    Ah! I want to try these! I love asparagus! Quick question though, you list using cream cheese twice, was one of them supposed to be parmesan cheese?

      Opps! Thanks for pointing that out. I fixed the recipe. Put the cream cheese on the puff pastry. Sprinkle the top with the parmesan cheese. πŸ™‚

    What happened to the actual recipe here. I know I seen it before but now that I am ready to make these don’t see anything other then the picture and the intro. What am I missing here?

      I have no idea!! I’m panicking a bit because every recipe I wrote using this particular recipe card plug in has vanished from my blog!!! I’m trying to figure out if I can retrieve my recipes or if I will just have to redo them all. I’ll have the recipe back one way or the other. πŸ™

    Oh good, I see you got it back up. I hope that means your plug in started working again and not that you had to rekey them in manually. Thanks

      Yes!! The plug-in designer actually had to go in on the backend and fix whatever happened. I’m not sure what he did, but I was sweating pretty hard there for a few days. I never even really thought of losing my work like that!! UGH!! Thanks for hanging in there. πŸ™‚
