Pastry-wrapped bloomy cheese presents: viable?

funklight | Nov 19, 2009 08:37 AM

Hello. I really want to make baked brie or camembert for a few friends for the holidays with an apricot rosemary chutney-type filling. I figure i can wrap it up in a disposable aluminum pan and leave it on their doorstep with baking instructions. I have a few concerns about the logistics of such a thing, like how long can you keep a wrapped cheese unbaked? Should i apply egg wash? which cheese is the best balance of economy and flavor?
Most of these friends live alone, and might not be able to handle a small wheel on their own. is it even worth it?
Thanks in advance to all those with any insight. I have been known to bite off more than i can chew with these things...
