  • egg 1, beaten
  • ready-rolled puff pastry 375g

Method

  • Step 1

    Cook the leeks with a knob of butter until tender. Cool slightly, season well and stir in the cream and half the egg.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oven to 200c/fan 180c/gas 6. Cut the pastry into 4. Cut a diagonal slit about ½cm into each corner, then fold over each edge to make a narrow border.
