Gooey Garlic Baked Camembert

Before: stuffed with garlic and thyme, Camembert is ready for the oven

I have to admit that Baked Camembert is one of my favourite treats, especially when people are over.  It is so easy and you can change it up by adding anything you want to the Camembert – cranberry jam for Christmas, Pecans and brown sugar in the fall.

But the classic Baked Camembert in my house, because it is the most popular with everyone, is Thyme and Garlic Camembert.  It is so easy but it looks beautiful!  As you can see above, it takes very little effort to prepare it and have it look beautiful.  More importantly it is so gooey and delicious after:
