Fig and Camembert Pastry Puffs
Makes 10 - 12
These are so easy to make and even easier to eat (much to my dismay). I scoffed 7 (that's half a wheel of cheese) in the span of 4 hours. Appalling. Oh well, you live and you learn. These bites of joy couldn't be more simple to make. All it requires is a little bit of cutting and building and you've got yourself some ridiculously tasty party favours. For the fancy hostess in you.
Any creamy cheese that melts nicely could work well in place of camembert. I prefer camembert to brie but everyone's different.
Any preserve or compote you feel like trying would be great. I just like fig!
Make these part of a bigger platter with some cold cuts, orange segments, grapes, fresh cheeses.
1 sheet of puff pastry, cold
1 small jar of fig compote
1 wheel of camembert, cut into 12 slices
1 cup of grapes, sliced
1/4 cup of whole milk
2 tablespoons of honey
Preheat your oven to 220℃ (425℉).
Cut your pastry sheet into 12 even squares. Spread a teaspoon of fig compote in the middle of the pastry. Place 1 slice of camembert into the centre of each pastry square.
Fold the pastry corners over the camembert - making sure to leave some of the cheese exposed.
Place the pastries onto a lined baking tray. Brush some milk over the pastries. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
When out of the oven, serve with grapes and honey! ENJOY!!
