My friend Cathy Mc sent me this message…
Ros, After you got me hooked on Baked Camembert again watching your video.
I made this one last night, had mates round to sample some of the local french wine, that we had brought over to the UK.
it turned out really nice so wanted to share with you all..
Cathy’s Baked Camembert in Filo Pastry Recipe…
3 tablespoons cranberry sauce
4 sprigs fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon clear honey
3 sheets ready rolled filo pastry
1 tablespoon olive oil
250g Camembert, sliced in half horizontally
400g white baguette
3 carrots, peeled and cut into batons
6 sticks celery, washed and each cut into 3 pieces
In a bowl, combine the cranberry sauce, thyme leaves and honey, then set aside.
On a baking sheet, layer up the filo, brushing a little of the oil between each piece.
Place one half of the Camembert in the centre of the filo, cut-side up, then brush more oil over the surrounding pastry.
Spread the cranberry mixture on the cheese and top with the remaining Camembert, cut-side down.
Bring the sides of the pastry up and around the cheese, using the remaining oil to seal it (like a big parcel).
Scatter with some of the extra thyme leaves and cook in the oven for 20 minutes, until golden.
To serve, place the Camembert parcel on a board with the baguette.
