RECIPE BY ANDY SWINSCOE, COURTYARD DAIRY.

Serves 4, or 8 as a starter.

This tart is lovely for a lunch, or serve with boiled new potatoes and dressed salad for a more substantial meal. You’ll need an 8-inch tart tin.

Pastry:
170g plain flour
85g butter
Salt
Cold water

Filling:
900g leeks
170g Dale End Cheddar
2 whole eggs
1 egg yolk
250ml double cream
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

To make the pastry, rub the flour with the butter until you have a breadcrumb texture. Add enough water to bind into a dough and chill for at least half an hour.

Clean and cut the leeks into rounds and cook in a frying pan with a small amount of olive oil. Cook the leeks for about 10 minutes on a low heat or until they are soft. Allow to cool then mix in a bowl the grated Dale End Cheddar, eggs, cream and salt and pepper.

Line an 8-inch buttered tart tin with the pastry and bake blind in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for 15-20 minutes. Carefully pour in the filling and bake for a further 30 minutes until it has set.
