Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Lightly grease a 23cm (9 in) pie dish.
Slice the wheel of Brie in half, horizontally, so that the halves are two, flatter wheels of Brie. Lay the puff pastry in the pie dish. Place half of the Brie (rind-side down) onto the pastry. Sprinkle almonds evenly over the top. Place the other half of the Brie (rind-side up) over the almonds. Bundle the pastry around the Brie.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
I madf this for a starter on Christmas day using home made spicy tomato chutney instead of almonds, with a sif salad and an extra dollop of chuney to serve. It worked beautifully and war very simple to make and quick x - 02 Jan 2015
