- 2 leeks, finely diced
- A knob of butter
For the Pastry

- Milk for glazing
Step 1- Take a frying pan and add the butter to it, before adding the leeks and frying for no more than 5 minutes.

Step 6- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius/350 degrees Fahrenheit/gas mark 4.
Step 7- Dust a work surface with some flour and roll out the pre-made puff pastry, cutting it to fit over the top of the pie tin that you are using.
Step 8-Brush the top of the pastry with the milk and bake for around 25-30 minutes until the top starts to crisp and is a delicious golden brown colour.
