Hello everyone!   Today I’m showcasing a gorgeous Canadian camembert cheese called Comfort Cream made by Upper Canada Cheese Company. Located in Ontario, this cheesemaker is committed to the farm-to-table concept and follow minimal food processing intervention to ensure the purest cheese possible.  That sounds good to me!  Let the ingredients and product shine, ya know?Baked Camembert with Berries, Thyme and Wine - girlheartfood.com

What is Comfort Cream Camembert Cheese?

Let’s just take a hot minute and think about that name – ‘Comfort Cream.’  I don’t know about you, but the name alone gives me all sorts of warm fuzzies.  I’m such a sucker for things like that.  Comfort Cream is made from fresh Guernsey milk, a rare, highly prized breed of dairy cow.  This artisanal cheese is aged for a minimum of four weeks, after which it is hand-salted, turned and wrapped.  It has white rind and inside that goodness is a super rich and creamy interior with a tangy finish.  Hungry yet?  I am ! #Always 😉

PREPARATION

This recipe couldn’t get easier, you guys.  I could honestly make a meal out of just this.  Annnnd, I could totally eat this all by myself.  I’m pretty sure my clothes wouldn’t thank me, but my belly would.Baked Camembert with Berries, Thyme and Wine - girlheartfood.com

Rind or no rind?  Some people like to eat the rind of camembert cheese, which I have done in the past.  However, for this recipe, I removed it, which I recommend you do too; it makes things a lot easier when serving so all you have to do when it’s baked is to get dunkin’ with that bread.Baked Camembert with Berries, Thyme and Wine - girlheartfood.com

In under 15 minutes (including prep), this Baked Camembert with Berries, Thyme and Wine could be yours.  Yep.  No lie.  Mix your favourite blueberry jam with some wine (cause this cheese, like most, pairs beautifully with wine), add a pinch of black pepper and some fresh thyme.  Bake for about 8-10 minutes.  When the time is up, carefully remove from the oven, garnish with a few fresh blueberries, more thyme and walnuts if your little heart desires.  Serve alongside fresh baked baguette.  Told ya it was easy!Baked Camembert with Berries, Thyme and Wine - girlheartfood.com

USE WHAT YOU HAVE

I’m all about using what you have on hand, especially when a recipe is as simple as this one.   Or, if you don’t like a certain ingredient, sub it out with something comparable.  If you don’t have blueberry jam in the fridge or strawberries are your jam (haha…no pun intended), then switch it up!  This recipe is pretty laid back (if a recipe could be that).  Another lovely combination to use with this Comfort Cream cheese is strawberry jam with tarragon and fresh strawberries.  The upcoming summer season begs for easy recipes.  No one has time to spend hours in the kitchen when the sun is blasting outside, am I right? Make something easy (like this recipe), go outside and enjoy the company of friends and family.  Good stuff!

SURPRISE GUESTS? NO PROBLEM!

Speaking of enjoying time with friends and family—>you should always have an emergency supply of cheese in your fridge.  Yes, this is not a drill.  Why?  Because it is so darn easy to whip something up quickly when unexpected guests arrive at your house and they want a little nosh. Put this deliciousness in front of them and it looks like you have your fancy pants on.  But, secretly, you know how easy it was.  Then again, if you served this to every guest that came to your house, they’d never leave 😉Baked Camembert with Berries, Thyme and Wine - girlheartfood.com

    This looks and sounds fantastic. I love the use of thyme in order to create a melty snack that is both fruity and herbaceous! I’m the worst person to have around bake camembert or brie, though. I just can’t stop eating it.

  2. Kevin | Keviniscooking says:

    Big fan of herbs mixed with fruit and sweets, so this is a tasty looking treat to me Dawn. Love the packaging their cheese, too!
    This gooey, gooey, creamy concoction looks dreamy and I wish I had some right now as I just picked dup a loaf of sourdough for dinner. YUM!

  3. Kathryn @ Family Food on the Table says:

    I can see why it’s called Comfort Cream – I feel better just looking at it! It looks so crazy creamy and then it gets all melty and laced with those gorgeous berries – drool worthy! This looks like the perfect summer entertaining plate – or just for a lazy picnic afternoon! Pinned! So delicious! Have a wonderful weekend my friend! XO

    i’ve done baked brie before (which is delicious), so i bet i’d love this, too (: my family always has too many appetizers at parties (to the point where most of us aren’t even hungry by the time dinner is ready oops), but i’m sure they’d love another cheese app (;

    I want to grab a piece of that bread and start dipping Dawn! What an awesome summery appetizer! You can’t beat fresh fruit and cheese whipped up into a delicious melty concoction!

    I’m sure this was unintentional but you’re TOTALLY killing me right now, girl! The pics of that gooey cheese are making me hungrier than I should be considering I’m eating breakfast as I type :). My mom makes baked camembert with roasted garlic and it’s insane but this looks even better. Because wine. I could eat this all day every day and be totally fine with it. Happy Monday, Dawn!

    Camembert is one of my favorites, Dawn and this wheel seems top quality… Love your oven baked, berry jam and wine version:) I can totally take care of the whole thing by myself, so your advice to always have a stash of cheese on hand is very well received:) There must be some for the guests after all:)… as in a second wheel of camembert. The baguette slices look great!

    Oh, I am all about some camembert, Dawn! Funny story: way back when I first met Laura, she sent me to the store to get some brie. I mistakenly bought camembert because (1) I wasn’t into food as much back then and (2) I wasn’t paying attention. But we used the camembert, and it was amazing. I’ve been a fan ever since! I’m totally digging the little bit of wine + thyme here. What a fun summer appetizer! If I’m eating camembert with crackers, I leave the rind on. But for a dish like this, I would go rindless, too. Looks amazing, my friend!!

      I love both brie and camembert so either is good for me 😉 In other words, if hubby came home with brie I wouldn’t turn him away, lol. Thanks so much and hope you get to try this one out 🙂 !

  11. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says:

    This sounds like such a delicious appetizer, Dawn! I will admit that I’ve never heard of comfort cream camembert cheese before, but it gives me the warm and fuzzies, too. Especially after seeing this deliciousness! I love baked brie, so I can only imagine how delicious this must taste. And what a great idea to mix the fruit with wine! My kind of snack! Pinned! Hope your week is off to a great start!
