Soft camembert and cider pies – with or without a Thermomix

I don’t think I can get any more French today – mixing Camembert, one of the most loved French cheese, and cider. Add the contrast of a few green apples and you end up with a soft and delicious mini pie.

The result is an unsurprisingly very tasty and perfect for a quick dinner or as a starter for a dinner party, served with a simple green salad.

Do not worry about buying the best imported Camembert as some of the flavour will be lost when heated. You can also substitute for Brie, should you want a milder taste.

I personally use green apples as I like the sharpness of them, but again, you can substitute for any other apples you may like.
