Spread a thin layer of the paste on top of the figs, you can make wafer thin biscuit shapes with the rest of the paste for a garnish.

Place in a pre-heated 190°c oven for 10 minutes.

When you take them out of the oven they will have opened out and the cheese will have diminished, you will have just the right hint of Camembert when you bite into them.


Delicious hot or cold
