Recipe Notes

1.) Before you cook or steam your asparagus snap off the woody root end of each asparagus stalk at its natural breaking point or cut off roughly 2 inches and discard.How to steam asparagus: Steam asparagus in a steamer for 5 to 7 minutes until tender. Remove asparagus from steamer and rinse under cold water.How to cook asparagus: Bring a large stock pot filled with water and 1 teaspoon of salt to a boil and cook asparagus for 3 to 5 minutes until bright green and tender. Remove asparagus from heat and rinse under cold water.2.) Scoring a border just means to slightly make a border around the outside of your puff pastry. Using a knife and cut half way into the puff pastry, an inch from the edge. Be careful not to cut through the puff pastry.
