Creative Australian cooks have taken their pie making game to new heights by making delicious baked Camembert parcels.
One clever mum recently took to Facebook to reveal her gourmet creation was made using a wheel of the soft French cheese, plum paste, pastry and the $29 Kmart pie maker.
The mum said cooking the cheese in the gadget created oozing hot ‘fondue/brie/Camembert with quince paste’ – perfect for serving as an entree or on a platter.
‘If you are looking for something quick and easy to serve for… lunch or afternoon tea, these are fantastic,’ she wrote alongside snaps showing the treats.

She used Pampas Puff pastry, 125g Brie or Camembert and quince or plum paste.
The pastry was cut into rounds slightly bigger than the cheese and placed into the pie maker.
Next, the cheese was placed on top and covered with a generous serving of the fruit paste.
For an extra touch, the mum added a small pastry heart to cover the join.
‘Wrap the pastry over the top so the cheese is sealed inside and bake for about 10 minutes,’ the mum said.

After cooking for 10 minutes in the versatile gadget the pies are golden brown and ready to be served as either an entree or as part of a platter
The mum’s inspired offering has seen her earn an outpouring of praise from scores of commenters on the popular pie making Facebook group.
‘Omg I’m in love,’ said one. ‘I’m such a savoury eater and I would eat that on my own.’
Another said: ‘Ohhhh (sic) I think that’ll go down a treat… especially paired with a bottle of Cienna.’
‘Far out looks like fancy food from a very expensive European deli,’ said a third.
