Asparagus WrapsPosted: December 14, 2008
For my wine party appetizer, I found a great recipe in the Somerset Collection Holiday Recipes catalog for Asparagus Wraps! This was easy to make ahead of time and ended up being a HUGE hit!
1 8 oz. package cream cheese softened
10 asparagus stalks blanched and cooled
10 thinly sliced good quality prosciutto
juice from 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp finely chopped dill
Split cream cheese in half. In one half mix lemon,dill and cream cheese in a bowl. Keep the other half plain.
Spread lemon and dill cream cheese on half of the prosciutto slices. Spread the plain cream cheese on the other slices.
Place one asparagus stalk in the middle of each slice of proscuitto.
Roll up each one and refrigerate for 30 mins for easy slicing.
When firm enough, slice each roll up into 6 one inch pieces.
Arrange on plate and refrigerate until ready to serve!
