Save Recipe

This ooey, gooey baked camembert cheese will be a hit at any party, or before any meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 Camembert cheese wheel
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 23 tablespoons honey, divided use
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped, for serving
  • 810 fresh figs, sliced, for serving
  • French bread or baguette, sliced, for serving

Instructions

Prep your tools. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set side.

Prep the cheese. Remove the plastic wrapping from the cheese and place it back in its wooden box. Wrap the bottom of the box with tin foil. If you prefer, you can transfer it to an appropriately sized small ramekin if you prefer. Put the cheese on the prepared baking sheet.

Score the cheese, add salt and honey. With a sharp knife, cut a crosshatch pattern on the top of the cheese rind. Sprinkle a generous pinch of kosher salt on top and add a drizzle of honey (about 1 tablespoon).

Bake. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the cheese for 12-15 minutes, until it is melty. Do not over bake.

Serve. Remove from the oven, take off the foil, and transfer the cheese to a serving platter. Arrange the walnuts and fig slices around the cheese. Drizzle more honey on top and serve immediately with the bread slices and a knife to scoop out the cheese.

Notes

Do not try to bake the cheese without the wooden box or some kind of container, otherwise the cheese will spread everywhere.
