Ingredients

  • 1 (14 oz.) package premium puff pastry sheets
  • 1 bunch organic asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 8 oz.  fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced long-lengthwise
  • 1 large egg, beaten (For the egg wash)

HERB HONEY SAUCE:

  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 Tbsps unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried basil

Instructions

TO MAKE THE PUFF PASTRY:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, add the asparagus, olive oil, salt, + black and toss together until fully coated.
  • Remove pastry sheets from packaging and roll out unto a floured surface. Cut the pieces into 8 squares total. Place the sliced mozzarella unto each square and top with a handful of asparagus (about 4-5 should fit). Take two sides of the pastry and fold up and over the asparagus until enclosed. Repeat until all squares are topped. NOTE: You can lightly brush both ends to ensure that they seal tightly, if preferred.
  • Place each prepared pastry unto the baking sheet, brush the tops with egg wash and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

TO MAKE THE HERB HONEY SAUCE:

  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add together all ingredients and mix until combined and the sauce heats through and begins to boil. Remove from heat.
  • Once puff pastries are baked to perfection, remove from oven, drizzle herb honey sauce atop each pastry and enjoy!
  • Bon Appetit!
