And now, let's get to the recipe!
- 1 Camembert cheese (you can use brie or another creamy cheese, such as coulommiers)
- 3 or 4 apricots
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1 or 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
- Salt and pepper
- Slices of toast or crackers to serve
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Place the camembert cheese in the Cheese Baker and make some cross-shaped cuts in the top crust. Once the cuts are made, with the tip of the knife, slightly lift the crust squares.
- Wash, dry and chop the apricots; Arrange them around the cheese and place some on top.
- Sprinkle with sunflower seeds.
- Next, pour the honey on top and drizzle with olive oil.
- Place the rosemary sprigs on top of the apricots. Also place one on the cheese to decorate.
- Finally, add the salt and pepper and close the 'Cheese Baker'.
- Bake for about 15-20 minutes.
- Serve with toasted bread, toasted seed bread, or crackers.
- As indicated, you can prepare this recipe with any cheese with characteristics similar to those of camembert.
- Likewise, you can replace apricots with peaches or nectarines.
- Choose the honey that you like the most, but try not to make it have a very strong flavor. A mild honey such as milflower, rosemary or lemon honey gives just the right amount of flavor and aroma without taking too much of a role in the final result.
