Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan200°C/gas 7. Halve a the pastry and roll out each piece into a disc about 3mm thick. Place the camembert in the centre of one, then brush the pastry edges with beaten egg. Lay the second pastry disc on top. Seal, crimp with a fork or your fingers, trim the excess, then brush with more beaten egg. Chill for 20 minutes.
  2. With a small, sharp knife, score the top of the pastry in a pinwheel design. Place on a baking sheet and cook for 25 minutes until golden and crisp. Remove and transfer to a lipped serving board.
  3. Eat straightaway with a green salad and crusty baguette.

  1. I love this recipe because I love cheese and this satiates every craving! Then add pastry and you’ve got a seriously good sharing starter that’s impressive too!

  2. I love this recipe because I absolutely adore cheese, especially camembert. I saw the recipe and thought it was a brilliant idea to combine it with pastry after previously having them with breadcrumbs. This recipe topped that and it is most definitely a guilty pleasure.
