Baked camembert in puff pastry

This baked Camembert is a great sharing starter even if as a french person who used to live in Normandy , i used to think cooking Camembert is a sacrilege but now i love it . For this recipe i used a cheap Camembert because a nice creamy farm one  should only be accompanied with fresh bread . To go in the puff pastry i use some of my homemade tomato and chilli jam , but other jams  such as apricots , berries will also be good and even better if they are is a link to the tomato and chilli jam recipe:

3.Spread 2 tbsp of jam into a circle the same size as the cheese, place the Camembert on the jam and pour the remaining jam on the cheese.

4.Beat the egg and brush some on the edges of the pastry.

5.Close the Camembert by folding up the pastry and press firmly for a tight seal.

6.Brush with the remaining beaten egg and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

Bon appetit
