Pesto Camembert

Discover this delicious Pesto Camembert With Puff Pastry Twists! Perfect for a table centrepiece.

Ingredients (serves 2-4)

  • 1 whole baking camembert
  • 2 sheets puff pastry, cut into a large circle
  • 3 tbsp pesto
  • 1 egg, beaten

Method

  1. Pre-heat fan oven to 180c.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
  3. Cut both sheets of pastry into a large circle. I used a plate to cut around. Place one of the circles of pastry onto the prepared baking sheet. Then spread over with pesto, keeping the very centre clean. Then place the second sheet of pastry directly on top. Place the camembert cheese box in the centre of the pastry circle and cut around.
  4. Now cut the pastry into 16 equal segments, from the camembert box to the outer edge of pasty. Lifting one segment at a time twist once to the right. Then do the same for the rest. Finally, working around bring two segments together by pressing them together.
  5. Now brush the pastry with egg wash. Make 3-4 slits on top of the camembert and then drizzle the cheese with olive oil. Bake in a preheated oven for around 20 minutes until the pastry is golden.
