Savory Christmas Star with Camembert

Go to the store and get frozen puff pastry because this will be your go to centerpiece for this years’ holiday gatherings! Easy to make and all you need is a baking tray 🙂 That crunchy pastry dipped into the melted cheese is a-ma-zing!

So Versatile, I used my tomato jam ( but you can absolutely use your favorite spread – whether homemade or not – like pesto either traditional or rosso, pizza sauce, marinara etc…


– 2 sheets of puff pastry, thawed
– 1 camambert
– Tomato jam as much as needed
– 2 eggs yolks + 2 tbsp of water

TIP: sprinkle on top a mix of sesame seeds, rosemary & thyme before baking.


  • Shape the puff pastry into equal circles using a regular plate. (TIP: Don’t throw away leftover dough but shape them as u like and bake alongside the star)
  • Place one sheet in an oven pan lined with baking paper and spread as much tomato jam (or chosen spread) as needed to cover all the pastry.
  • Now place the camembert in the middle.
  • Carefully place the other pastry sheet on top making sure it covers everything.
  • Lightly pinch the edges with your fingers to stick the two pasties together.
  • Now using a knife cut 16 equal wedges making sure to leave the cheese untouched in the middle.
  • Now twist the pastry.
  • Brush with the egg wash and sprinkle the sesame mixture on top.
  • Place in preheated oven on 190 degrees untill puffed and golden.

To serve: cut the top off the cheese and dip the pastry in.

Buon Appetito!
