Baked Camembert


It’s almost feels like cheating to put this as a separate recipe, but this little appetizer is such a crowd pleaser that I had to include it.

Camembert is a soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow’s milk cheese that originated from Normandy in northern France.  Camembert is very similar to brie, which is also made from cow milk; however brie originates from the Île de France.  Brie traditionally is produced in large wheels and tends to be sold as wedges cut from the larger wheel, therefore will have some sides not covered by the rind.  In contrast, Camembert is ripened as a small round cheese fully covered by rind which does affect the taste.  For this baked cheese purpose, having a smaller round fully covered in rind helps contain the cheese from fully melting out during the baking process.
