Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes

Servings: 16 people


Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat and cook the red onion over a low heat for 10 mins until softened. Add the balsamic vinegar, red wine, sugar and cranberries, then cook for 10 mins until reduced and jammy. Cover and set aside.

Roll the puff pastry out on a lightly floured surface into a large rectangle, about the thickness of a euro coin. Cut into 16 squares, each about 4cm. Transfer to the lined baking tray and bake for 10 mins until the pastry is puffed up and golden.

Top each pastry square with a slice of Camembert and return to the oven for 2-3 mins until the cheese melts. Using a teaspoon carefully top each one with the cranberry sauce and garnish with thyme leaves to serve.
