Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, toss asparagus tips with olive oil, salt and lemon zest. Set aside.
  3. Unroll puff pastry and flatten into a 9-by-14-inch rectangle with the 14-inch side facing you. Using a pizza cutter, cut the pastry into thirds horizontally and then into sixths vertically, making 18 rectangles.
  4. Place 9 sides of pastry on baking sheet. With a sharp knife, score a line ¼-inch inside the edge of the pastry to make a border. Then generously prick the middle with a fork. Brush the entire pastry with egg wash and bake for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove pastries from oven and, using a sharp knife, gently cut the pastry again where it was scored, then use a fork to gently press down the middle to form a “boat.”
  6. Fill the boats with 1 tablespoon shredded gruyere cheese and then sprinkle the entire pastry with herbs. Arrange 2 to 3 asparagus tips over cheese, pressing down gently, then sprinkle with cracked black pepper.
