Leek Vol-au-vents

We had a go at making vol-au-vents a while ago and thought it was time to try them again.

We rolled out a packet of puff pastry to about the thickness of a pound coin. We then cut it into discs and cut out the middle of half the discs to make rings. We then put the rings on top of the discs (sealing together with egg wash). We brushed over the edges with some more egg wash and baked them in the oven for about 15 mins, until golden and cooked. We then let them cool.

For the filling we sweated of some chopped leeks in a little oil before adding some soft cheese (Philadelphia) and crumbling in some Danish Blue. We then let the mixture cool slightly before spooning it into the vol-au-vent cases. We put on their little lids (the insides of the rings we cut out). And baked them in the oven for a further 5 mins.
