Asparagus season is here and I made a point of making a trip to my hometown to get some asparagus from the local farm there. Pickling asparagus has become a favourite of mine during the season.

This year I was encouraged to try this delicious recipe.
Asparagus Pastries with Thyme infused Honey
1 bunch of asparagus
Olive oil
Sea salt & pepper
2 sheets rolled frozen puff pastry, thawed
8 oz. brie cheese, cut into 8 pieces
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp. salted butter
Thyme sprigs

Preheat oven to 375F. Drizzle asparagus with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread out one sheet of pastry on a floured surface and cut into 4 pieces. Repeat with the other sheet. On each square of pastry place a slice of brie diagonally. Next, place 4-6 asparagus spears on top of the cheese. Take the two other sides of the square and wrap around the cheese and asparagus, pressing the pastry to close. Brush each pastry with egg.

Bake pastries in oven for 25 minutes. Meanwhile, create thyme infused honey by combining honey, butter, and thyme leaves in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a gentle boil. When pastries are removed from the oven, drizzle the honey over top. Serve and enjoy!

We had this for dinner alongside a salad, but this would be most ideal for a brunch! Yum :)
