A bundle of Asparagus
A package of Prosciutto
A Small package of Goat Cheese
A small dish of water to use as an adhesive to bind the dough together
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F.Line your cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a silpat.Blanche Asparagus (as notated in my post) and then cut about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of the base off the asparagus.With a pair of pastry scissors or a knife, cut pieces of dough enough to wrap around the asparagus once.Wrap a small piece of prosciutto around the asparagus.Lay the wrapped asparagus on the cut portion of dough. (I use about 4 layers of the dough).Add a little goat cheese tot he lining of asparagus.Wrap the dough around asparagus completely, and then dip a finger in water and wipe the edges of the dough to act as a binding agent.Place the edging of the dough face down.Bake for approximately 12 minutes or until golden brown.
You may add other yummy ingredients or semi-firm malleable cheeses (such as stilton or feta) to replace goat cheese. Some fresh Rosemary or Thyme would add some yummy flavors to it! I don’t recommend adding salt, as the prosciutto will have enough salt content from its curing process.
