How to make Puff Pastry Carrots with Boursin & Asparagus
Step one: Preheat oven to 410°F
Step two: roll out a piece of puff pastry.
Step three: spread room temperature Boursin Garlic & Fine herb cheese edge to edge on the piece of puff pastry.
Step four: slice the puff pastry into 1″ strips
Step five: Cut asparagus into 4″ pieces.
Step six: set asparagus so the tip rests on the outside edge of one of the strips. You need 3-4 pieces per puff.
Step seven: Starting from the top of the puff pastry, roll down until the end of the puff covers the edge of the asparagus.
Step eight: pinch the puff pastry at the end to form a carrot tip shape.
Step night: place on a silpat-covered baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
Serve and enjoy!
