Asparagus and puff pastry cigars

Asparagus and puff pastry cigars

A quick and easy veggie nibble for summer parties. Serve with glasses of fizz and elderflower cordial.

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

  2. Roll the puff pastry out on a floured surface into an 15cmx25cm/6inx10in rectangle and spread all over with the cream cheese.

  3. Using a sharp knife, cut the pastry into 10 long, thin strips.

  4. Wrap one pastry strip in a spiral around each asparagus spear and place onto a baking tray. Lightly brush each with beaten egg then scatter over the parmesan.

  5. Bake the cigars in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the pastry has risen and is golden-brown.
