Baked Camembert with Dried Figs, Cranberries and Walnuts
This is a quick appetizer to pull together with some pantry staples and a round of Camembert or brie cheese. I reconstituted some chopped dried figs and cranberries in some hot water and drained them after 10 minutes and mixed it together with some apricot jam, (you could also use chutney, fig jam or even orange marmalade) and chopped walnuts. You could also use almonds or pistachios and this mixture can be made the day before and refrigerate. Bake the cheese with the mixture on top for 10 minutes and serve with crackers. You could also serve it with sliced apples or pears. I forgot to set the timer and cooked it too long, so the cheese melted all over and wasn’t a pretty picture (literally!) and I didn’t include the photo, but yours will be better!
