Yields: 8 servings


  • 1 bunch Asparagus, ends trimmed, blanched, patted dry
  • 12 slices Prosciutto, sliced thin
  • 7 oz Pineland Farms Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 2 sheets Puff Pastry, slightly thawed
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • TT Salt & Pepper
  • Note:  TT = “To Taste”


  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the puff pastry so it is doubled in size. Cut pastry into 6 squares.
  3. In a medium bowl, drizzle the blanched asparagus with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Mix until evenly coated.
  4. To make the pastries, take a slice of prosciutto, fold it in half and place it on top of each square. Follow with 3 or 4 seasoned stalks of asparagus and 2 tablespoons of the shredded Pineland Farms Sharp Cheddar Cheese.
  5. Lift two opposite corners of the pastry and press them together to seal. Brush with egg wash.
  6. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Serve immediately.
