Salmon and leek mini Quiches with a Cream Cheese pastry

Salmon and leek mini Quiches with a super easy and delicious Cream Cheese pastry.

These little beauties are easy to make and delicious!

The pastry is super easy. Just butter, cream cheese, flour and water.

Here is the recipe: 

110 gms butter
140 gm cream cheese
1 cup of all purpose flour
2 tablespoons water

1. In a bowl add flour, butter (cut into cubes), cream cheese and water. Mix (slow setting on an electric mixer, or by hand) together until it forms a thick dough. (Handle the dough as least as possible as you dont want to warm the butter too much). Flour your hands to stop sticking and roll dough into a bowl and put in the fridge for one hour. Press tablespoons onto the bottom and sides of cupcake cups or tin. (Grease tin first with butter)

 1 Leek diced
4 eggs
1 cup of milk or cream
smoked salmon
1/2 a cup of cheese (sometimes I use 2 cheeses like Parmesan and Gouda, but any will do)
Finely chopped chives

The filling is basically making scrambled eggs and adding thing, so you can vary. Try it with bacon and tomato.
Heat a pan with Olive oil, add leek and cook to soften
Beat eggs and milk in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt. Add cheese and leek to mixture. Put small pieces of Salmon in to the pasty cups then spoon in mixture to fill.
Bake in oven at 180 degrees for 25 - 30 mins or until golden brown.

They tun out moist and juicy and so so yummy. Once you have one, you'll want another.  Enjoy.
