  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • Bake for about 15 minutes, until the dough is slightly golden.
  • Place the asparagus in a saucepan filled with boiling water, and cook for about 2 minutes until tender but still crisp. Set aside.
  • Open up the puff pastries by cutting them width-wise and set aside.
