[Weekend Herb Blogging] – Baked Cheese with Cranberry Jam
2 small camembert (or any other soft cheese)
4 sheets of filo pastry
2 tablespoons fresh herbs ( I used cilantro and lemon thyme)
Season Cheese with salt and pepper.
Slightly brush one filo dough sheet with oil and place a second one on top. Sprinkle with some herbs and place the cheese on top. Wrap the dough sheets around so that everything is nicely covered and you have a “sealed” package. Make sure the cheese will have no chance to escape once it melts…
In your preheated pan use some oil and bake the cheese on both sides until it is golden. (1-2 minutes per side)
12 ounces of fresh cranberries
2 cups of freshly squeezed orange juice (4 to 6 oranges)
¾ cup of preserving sugar
Then I followed the instructions given here. It worked out really nice, not as sweet as normal jam would be but I liked it very well with cheese…
