Method: 

Preheat oven to 400°F. Blanch asparagus spears in boiling water until just tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and spread out in a single layer on towels to dry. Cut puff pastry into 24 equal-sized rectangular strips. Place half a piece of prosciutto on each piece of pastry, followed by a short strip of Brie, then gently press an asparagus spear into each piece of Brie. The asparagus (but not the cheese) will stick out at either end of the pastry. Fold the pastry over to create a long thin bundle, gently squeezing the edge to seal. Place seam side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until pastry is puffed and golden, 10 to 12 minutes.
