Recipe Reviews

27th October 2011

soupereasy from Wanaque, N.J

I was very impressed with the ease of bringing this together.
I will preface this with the fact that I am not a baker.

The pastry came together really easily in the food processor, I divided it into the rounded discs and refrigerated in seperate baggies overnight.

Cooked off the leeks this morning, rolled out the pastry, assembled and baked for a really lovely lunch.

The technique they used of pouring the custard through the vent hole on top was a bit of a letdown, as one would think the "custard" settled happily in the center. Next time I will make several decorative vent holes and then add the custard.

Only change I made was I used pancetta instead of bacon, reason, I had pancetta on hand but no bacon.

This is really an outstanding pie.

This can be served hot or room temp. Great for entertaining.
