Happy Thanksgiving! Last month, I received a sample Ile de France's Normandie Camembert Cheese. This is a soft-textured cheese, extremely creamy with a deliciously earthy, rustic flavor. It is made in the town of Pace in Normandie, believed to be the birthplace of Camembert cheese. The milk used to make the cheese is taken from cows that leisurely graze on lush vegetation. Within 48 hours, the milk is transformed into this savory, fresh-tasting creamy fromage that can be enjoyed as is or in appetizers,salads, entrees, desserts and snacks.
This cheese is delicious on sesame seed crackers. But I decided to make Holiday Camembert Puffs with just three ingredients, Camembert cheese, kiwi and apple butter. The apple butter was from an Amish store in Branson we visited last month and for a quick and easy dough, I used store-bought buttermilk biscuit dough.
First, I split each dough portion in the middle to create two discs. Then, I placed a slice of Camembert cheese, kiwi and a teaspoon of apple butter in the center of one. I laid the other disc over the first and sealed the edge with a fork. I baked the pastry till they were golden brown. These puffs were easy to make and the taste was so amazing!
