" I truly think it is best to be a robin lightly dressed concocting soup inside my nest" ~Maurice Sendak

Be Merry

At this time of year with so many family gatherings and holiday parties it can be challenging to find new and different appetizer ideas.

This one is unique as it combines the sweetness of honey with the subtle taste of fresh thyme. Keep an eye on it in the oven as it can become too soft very quickly. You can substitute any soft or semi soft cheese in place of the Camembert such as Brie.

Serve with assorted crackers and sliced ripe pears.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone!
