I really liked this alot.
I scaled down the recipe (thanks for that feature BTW), and it's the perfect size for my meal.

This Leek Tart is similar to the Flamiche aux Poireuax, a savory leek tart made in northern France.

I use this same recipe to make individual small tarts.

Preheat oven to 400°F

Heat 4 tablespoons of the butter in a heavy saucepan, add leeks and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Add 1 cup of water, cover and simmer gently for 20 minutes or until tender.

In another saucepan, melt the remaining two tablespoons butter, blend in flour and cook over medium heat to make a roux. Blend in leek mixture, bring to a boil and season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

Beat egg and cream together, blend with leek mixture and pour into unbaked pie crust. Sprinkle top evenly with white cheddar cheese.

Bake in preheated 400°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheese begins to brown.
