- Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
- Cut the puff pastry into 6 pieces. Transfer squares to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Slice about 1 cm inside the squares, all around creating a “frame”.
- Bake for 10 minutes until golden.
- Finely chop the leeks and sauté in a pan along with some butter or olive oil, until they soften.
- Season with salt and pepper. Add a little more butter, the sugar and thyme.
- Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool completely. When it does, add the egg.
- Remove the pastry squares from the oven. Press down in the center to release the air and flatten them. This area will hold the filling.
- Divide and add the filling to the squares equally.
- Crumble the Roquefort over the filling. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts and some thyme.
- Bake at 200* C (390* F) for 10-15 minutes.
