    Method

    1. Pre-heat your oven to 350°F.
    2. Cut just the top rind off of the camembert wheel.
    3. Spread the Indian Tomato Chutney onto the exposed cheese and sprinkle with the chopped candied walnuts.
    4. Roll out the puff pastry sheet and cut a 10-inch round. Place the round over the camembert wheel with the chutney side facing down.
    5. Brush the edge of the puff pastry with the egg wash at least an inch thick. Fold the pastry around the cheese, enclosing it by crimping the edges all around. Flip the wheel over and cut little vent holes in the top.
    6. Turn the wheel over on a baking sheet so the crimped side is down. Bake until golden and puffed, about 50 minutes.
    7. Serve garnished with the additional Indian Tomato Chutney and candied walnuts.
