I used to buy a special Pillsbury croissant dough in the States to make it, but since I can't find it here I use the ready-made frozen shortcrust pastry as well as puff pastry, so you can try both, it gives different textures but both are good.
So, you take a whole camembert (not the huge one), add a generous tablespoon of apricot jam on top and spread it evenly, then add flaked almonds on top. Put the cheese on a rolled pastry, cover it with another pastry layer, smooth the edges on the sides, cut off the sticking bits (you can use them for fancy shapes on top if you like). All the cheese should be covered well, so that it doesn't escape the "blanket".
Then use a bit of butter to smear all over the prepared pastry, or a beaten egg yolk.
bake for about 20 minutes, or until it all looks golden.
Don't cut at once, or the cheese will run. Give it five minutes or so.
It's very nice served with green salad, or do the full monty, and serve it with pears poached in green tea with ginger syrup and cinnamon.

It is always a bit hit with my guests. :D

I absolutely love camembert, and if I wasn't so calorie conscious, I might even try your recipe. As it is, camembert, jam, almonds and pastry, even a small amount, would have more calories in it that a MacDonalds meal! :shock:

Shame! It sounds so good!

I don't think it's worse than a McDonald's meal, as it is not eaten just by one person, but as a starter divided between several people.
Also I don't do it that often, and then again I don't do takeaways or ready-made meals at home, so I guess I can indulge now and then. :D
