I know I’ve made brie on the blog before and wasn’t really such a big fan of it (kinda think it tastes like feet) but when I had the opportunity to work together with Joy of Kosher and Les Petite Fermieres to develop a recipe, I thought I would challenge myself to try brie’s sister cheese, creamy camembert. I’ve convinced myself that if I add enough delicious flavors to something I don’t like, I might actually learn to enjoy it. Can you really go wrong with adding bourbon, pine nuts, honey and dried cherries to anything? I’m pretty sure a shoe would taste good with all of those ingredients! But we aren’t making a shoe here today, people! We’re making a classic French dish called Camembert en Croute. This fancy dish is actually much easier to make than you may think. With pre-made pastry or crescent dough, a wheel of  camembert cheese and just a few ingredients mixed together in a bowl, you can create this beautiful show-stopping appetizer. The cheese is salty, the topping is sweet and the crescent dough sprinkled with coarse sugar adds some serious crunch.

Less than 10 ingredients and only 5 minutes of prep! Does it get any better?!?
