Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark six.
  2. For the pastry, place the flour and butter in a food processor and blitz until it resembles breadcrumbs. 
  3. Add the egg yolk and two to three tablespoons of water and pulse to form a soft dough. Knead lightly, wrap in clingfilm and chill for 20-30 minutes.
  4. Divide the pastry into six and use to line six by ten centimetre deep fluted tins. Line with foil and baking beans and bake for 10 minutes, remove the foil and beans and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, blanch the asparagus in boiling water for two minutes, drain and cool.
  6. Whisk together the cream, eggs, egg yolk and blue cheese dressing in a large jug, season. Place the asparagus and spring onions in the pastry cases followed by the cheese.
  7. Pour over the sauce, sprinkle with pepper flakes and bake for 25 minutes until golden.
  8. Allow to cool slightly before removing from the tins.

Cooks tip

Try using cheddar instead of gruyere and leek instead of asparagus.
