All you need is:
1 Sheet of ready made Puff Pastry
1 Egg (beaten)
1 Cup Flour
1 Wheel Camembert
1/2 Cup Island Store Hot Pepper Jelly, or for those more timid about heat, rasberry or damson jam.
All you have to do is:
Pre-heat the oven to 220c/425f/Gas 7, then lightly dust your pastry prep surface with some of the flour and lay out the pastry sheet, (no need to roll).
Place the camembert in the centre and generously spread the jam on top of the cheese, then turn it over and do the same with the bottom and sides.
Using a pastry brush paint the egg wash on the outer inch of the pastry and simply close it all up in a parcel, sealing it carefully so that the cheese doesnʼt leak. Lastly, make two slits in the top, to let out the steam.
Brush the parcel all over with the remaining egg wash and bake in a pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and puffed up. Itʼs quick, easy and totally delicious, better still it looks at though you have spent hours on it, we love this type of recipe. We serve it as a communal starter for everyone to dive into with some Fine Cheese Company Natural Crackers.
