   For the pastry cornets:
   =======================
   
        Roll the pastry out onto a lightly floured work
   surface to 3 x 20 rectangle, 1/4 thick.  Cut the
   rectangle into 4 long strips, each 3/4 wide.
   
        Wrap each strip around a long metal cone (which
   can be made from heavy-duty aluminum foil), beginning
   at the tip and rolling the strip around and around,
   overlapping slightly.  Place these on an ungreased
   baking sheet and refrigerate for 1 hour or more.
   
        Preheat oven to 375 F.
   
        Bake pastry cornets until golden, about 15
   minutes.
   
        Cool briefly, then very carefully the metal or
   foil cones.
   
   For the lemon dressing:
   =======================
   
        Combine the egg yolks, mustard, lemon juice, and
   salt and pepper. Whisk in the oil a drop at a time.
   When the dressing begins to thicken, add the oil 1
   teaspoon at a time, then continue adding oil in a thin
   stream.
   
        Adjust seasonings to taste.
   
        Cook the asparagus, tied in bundles, in boiling
   salted water until it’s just crisp-tender; drain.
   
   Construction:
   =============
   
        Pour a small amount of dressing on each serving
   plate.
   
        Place a cornet on top of the dressing and tuck
   the asparagus into the ends of the cornet, fanning the
   tips outward.
