French Leek Pie

The French Leek Pie I made for Pie Night was gone in 11 minutes. It was super easy to make. I used the French Leek Pie recipe at allrecipes.com, with some minor adaptations.

  • 1 pie crust
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 leeks
  • 1 pinch salt (to taste)
  • 1 pinch pepper (to taste)
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese (more or less)
  1. preheat oven to 375°
  2. grate the Gruyere
  3. chop the leeks
  4. melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat
  5. add leeks
  6. cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, or until soft
  7. reduce heat to low
  8. add salt and pepper
  9. stir in cream and shredded Gruyere cheese
  10. heat on low until mixture is warmed through
  11. pour mixture into the pie shell
  12. bake for 30 minutes, or until the custard is set and golden on top

slightly more butter because I didn't want to measure less than a tablespoon. didn't pre-bake my crust.
