Asparagus in Puff Pastry

These appetizers are fast and easy. Batches can be frozen during asparagus season for serving throughout the year. From Dianne Werdegar: Naperville, Illinois. Recipe published in Light & Tasty April/May 2001.

  • Yield: 25 servings
  • Prep time:30 Minutes
  • Cook time:10 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cup(s) water
  • 24 fresh asparagus spears (about 1 pound), trimmed
  • 1 8-ounce package(s) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 package(s) (17-1/4 ounces) frozen puff pastry dough, thawed
  • 1/4 cup(s) egg substitute

Preparation

• In a large nonstick skillet, bring water to a boil. Add asparagus; cover and cook for 3 minutes. Drain asparagus and immediately place in ice water; drain and pat dry. In a bowl, beat cream cheese and salt until smooth; set aside.

• Unfold the dough on a lightly floured surface. Cut each sheet in half widthwise. For each rectangle, spread cream cheese mixture lengthwise over half of the dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Arrange two rows of three asparagus spears lengthwise in a single layer over cream cheese.

• Brush edges of dough with some of the egg substitute; fold dough over filling and press edges together to seal. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

• Cut widthwise into 1-1/4-in. pieces. Place 1 in. apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush with remaining egg substitute. Bake at 425° for 8-12 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. Yield: 28 servings.
