set aside. Unroll pastry. Cover with plastic wrap and damp kitchen towel.
Transfer 2 stacked phyllo sheets to work surface, arranging 1 short side
parallel to edge of work surface. Arrange 2 more stacked phyllo sheets on
work surface, overlapping long side of first sheets by about 5 to 7 inches
and forming rectangle about 18 by 17 inches. Brush pastry with butter;
sprinkle 1 1/2 tablespoons rosemary over. Place 2 more stacked sheets atop
first set of 2 sheets, then 2 more stacked sheets atop second set of 2
sheets. Brush with butter and sprinkle with 1 1/2 tablespoons rosemary.
Repeat layering 1 more time with phyllo, butter and 1 1/2 tablespoons
rosemary. (You will use a total of 12 sheets.) Using sharp knife or
scissors, trim phyllo corners, forming approximately 17-inch oval. place
Brie in center of phyllo. Spread 1 1/2 cups chutney evenly over cheese.
Slide hand under 1 rounded corner of phyllo. Lift phyllo and fold onto top
of cheese. Brush folded pastry with butter. Continue to lift phyllo in
sections and to fold snugly over top of cheese, brushing with butter and
pressing each section to adhere until cheese is wrapped (the top center 2
to 3 inches of cheese will not be covered). Use hand and metal spatula to
transfer wrapped cheese to prepared baking sheet.
