3. Make a well in the middle and scatter with the butter.

4. Crack the egg into the well, add 2-3 tbsp of lukewarm water and cut all ingredients together with a knife to a crumbly consistency.

5. Knead quickly to a dough with your hands, form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for around 30 minutes.

7. Mix the cream cheese with the eggs, cream and half the parmesan to a smooth consistency.

8. Add the spinach, garlic and leek and season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.

9. Roll the pastry out between two sheets of plastic wrap and use to line a 26 cm diameter greased tart pan.

10. Pour the filling into the pastry case and smooth the surface, sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan and bake for around 40 minutes until golden brown.
