  1. Unroll the pastry and cut off two-thirds. Roll a little thinner so it is big enough to wrap up the cheese, then brush with egg. Sit the Camembert in the middle; wrap the pastry up and over the sides of the cheese and pinch together firmly to seal. Turn over so the neat side is the top. Cut the remaining pastry into strips, brush with egg, then wrap and stick these around the top and sides for a ‘mummy’ effect. Cover and chill for 20 mins.
  2. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Brush the pastry with more beaten egg and bake for 20-25 mins until golden.
  3. Decorate the baked cheese with edible eyes and serve with a selection of crackers and breadsticks, if you like.

Tip: Use what you have! Crusty bread and breadsticks work just as well as crackers.
