Simple to make, packed with flavour, absolutely delicious, hot, melted baked Camembert recipe… dip your crusty baguette into the gooey goodness for complete satisfaction.
Baked Camembert in puff pastry
Bunch fresh thyme
2 cloves of garlic
1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey)
Cut the pastry into a circle large enough to enclose the camembert. Place camembert in the middle of the pastry, fold the pastry up over the cheese and crimp the edges to secure it.
With a sharp knife make small incisions in the top of the cheese. Peel and finely slice the garlic, and stud the camembert with the garlic and small sprigs of thyme. The garlic & thyme should be pushed into half its depth.
Drizzle the cheese with the maple syrup (or honey), grind fresh black pepper over it, then brush the pastry with beaten egg.
Bake at 170°C for around 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the cheese is runny. Ready to serve!
Makes a good starter for sharing, or great party food. Serve with crusty or toasted baguette, grissini breadsticks or anything else you fancy dipping into it!
