1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
8 cooked 5 inch asparagus spears
1 carton (8 ounces) spreadable chive-onion cream cheese

(This can be done day before.) 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 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 28 appetizers.
