(luckymommyto2boys ~ Recipezaar.com)

8 fresh asparagus spears
1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 (8 ounce) carton spreadable chive & onion cream cheese
4 slices deli ham (thin slices)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 375°F. Put asparagus in skillet with ½” water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 3-5 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain and set aside.
Separate crescent dough into four rectangles; seal perforations. Spread cream cheese over each rectangle to within ¼" of edges. Top each with ham, leaving ¼" uncovered on one long side. Place two asparagus spears along the long side with the ham; roll up and press seam to seal.
Cut each roll into seven pieces. Place cut side down 1" apart on greased baking sheets.
Combine butter and garlic powder; brush over spirals.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
