PREP TIME: 10-15 minutes
COOK TIME: 12 minutes
16-18 spears Asparagus
13 oz puff pastry
6 slices ham
6 slices cheese (Cheddar, Gouda, or Mozzarella)
1 egg beaten
1 tsp poppy seeds and 1 tsp sesame seeds
fresh basil (optional)
Preheat your oven to a toasty 400°F.
Roll out our buttery puff pastry on a floured surface to a ¼-inch thickness.
Cut the pastry into 6 perfect squares, ensuring each gets its share of goodness.
Add a layer of mouthwatering ham slices diagonally, followed by 3 vibrant Asparagus (Altar Produce) spears per pastry.
Complete the masterpiece with a slice of cheese or a generous sprinkle of grated cheese.
Now, let's get folding! Bring one corner of the pastry over the delicious filling, sealing it with a brush of beaten egg.
Fold the opposite corner, creating a beautiful overlap, and secure the deal with a fork's gentle press.
Place your artful creations on a parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving a cozy 2-inch space between them.
Give your pastries the golden touch with a delicate brush of beaten egg, and let a mixture of poppy and sesame seeds sprinkle some magic on top.
The oven does its thing – bake for 12-15 minutes until that mesmerizing golden hue appears.
A final flourish of fresh basil leaves makes for a delightful garnish if you're feeling extra fancy.
Remember, these delights are at their peak when enjoyed fresh out of the oven – embrace the goodness!
