Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

8 5-inch asparagus spears, cooked (canned is fine)
1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 carton (8 ounces) spreadable chive-onion cream cheese
4 thin slices 4x5-inch deli ham
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

Separate crescent dough into four rectangles; seal perforations. Spread cream cheese over each rectangle to within 1/4 inch of edges. Top each with ham slice, leaving 1/4 inch uncovered on one long side. Place two asparagus spears in this 1/4 in space next to ham slice. Roll up and press seam to seal. Chill. (This can be done a day ahead.) Slice each chilled roll into seven pieces. Place cut side down 1-inch apart on greased baking sheet. Combine butter and garlic powder; brush over spirals. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 28 appetizers.
