Steps to make this recipe

Step 1: Score your cheese

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Remove the Camembert from the paper wrapping. Using a sharp knife, score a 1/4th-inch crosshatch into the top of the rind. You can alternatively remove the top rind of the cheese all together, but I personally love scoring it this way if you don’t mind the rind.

Step 2: Season!

Next, you can either keep the cheese in the wooden box, or you can transfer to a small baking dish. A dish with foil also works here as well. Place the dish on a baking tray with parchment paper (just in case it overflows!)

Then, season with olive oil, honey, a sprinkle of chili flakes, salt and pepper on the top of the cheese. Take your rosemary and thyme sprigs and place then in the crevices of your cuts on the cheese, and then season on top as well.

Step 3: Bake & serve

Transfer and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the cheese is soft and oozing. If you undercook this cheese, it will stay hard, and if you overcook it (past 14-15 minutes), it will re-harden. Serve immediately with toasted crusty bread and grapes!

Tips, Tricks and Substitutions

What is camembert cheese?

Camembert cheese is from Normandy, France. It’s made from cow’s milk and is a creamy, soft ripened cheese. It has has an edible white rind, which can be eaten as well! The taste and texture is a little bit earthy, nutty and creamy once baked. It is not a type of brie, although it often does get grouped together, however brie is a tad more creamier, especially in it’s raw form. The flavors of camembert, especially when baked are just delicious!

You can serve this on a charcuterie board or platter, baked or in it’s raw form!

Can I do substitute with brie if I can’t find camembert?

Yes, absolutely! You can sub this with a round of brie.

How long should I bake my camembert?

Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the cheese is soft and oozing. If you undercook this cheese, it will stay hard, and if you overcook it (past 14-15 minutes), it will re-harden.
This cheese doesn’t get more cheesy as you continue to cook it, so be sure to not overcook it!

What are some other toppings or ingredients I can include?

Ingredients like nuts (almonds, pecans and walnuts would work great here!), thinly sliced garlic clove, apples, jam, maple syrup and/or cranberries, cranberry sauce, or raspberry sauce would be awesome additions.
