Asparagus and Brie Open Pastry

Recipe by love4culinary
READY IN: 57mins
YIELD: 1 sheet




  • First preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Take out your large cutting board and dust with flour lightly.
  • Gently roll the sheet of puff pastry into a rectangle 16x10 inches.
  • Trim the edges if they are crooked.
  • With a knife, score (gently) 1 inch in from the edges to mark a rectangle.
  • Use a fork and pierce the dough inside the markings at 1/2-inch intervals.
  • Randomly scatter some baking beans so the dough doesn't poof up badly (you know, the kind you use when blind baking pie dough!).
  • Bake 12 minutes.
  • Leave your oven on, but remove pastry from the oven.
  • Layer the slices of brie over the top (leave a small edge).
  • Cut your asparagus to the width of the pastry and arrange in a single layer over your brie slices (you could make it pretty or whatever by putting top to bottom top to bottom alternating ends that are on each side).
  • Brush top with the seasoned olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake 25 minutes.
  • Serve!
