    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. 2
      Place first 5 ingredients in food processor fitted with steel blade; process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. With machine running, slowly pour in 2 T. ice water; process, adding more ice water if needed, until dough gathers into mass. Remove dough from processor.
    3. 3
      Roll dough on lightly floured surface into 13-inch circle. Transfer to 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom; press dough lightly against side of pan. Trim overhang to 1/2 inch, fold down against pan, and pinch lightly to make sturdy edge 1/4-inch taller than pan. Prick bottom with fork at 1-inch intervals. Refrigerate 1 hour.
    4. 4
      Bake tart shell until surface feels dry, 16-17 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack before filling.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, fry bacon in heavy medium skillet over medium-low heat just until crisp and lightly browned, about 6 ninutes. Remove with slotted spoon to paper towels to drain, then crumble.
    6. 6
      Pour off all but 1 T. of the bacon fat. Add leeks and saute over medium heat until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let stand.
    7. 7
      Whisk cream, eggs, egg yolk, salt, and pepper in mixing bowl until thoroughly blended.
    8. 8
      Place cooled tart shell on baking sheet. Scatter bacon, leeks, and cheese evenly over shell. Place baking sheet on rack in oven. Carefully pour custard into shell.
    9. 9
      Bake just until custard is set in center, 25-30 minutes. Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.

      Delicious. My leeks were a little on the large size, so only used two. I also added some nutmeg to the custard. :)

      This was a yummy tart. I was also scared of making pastry, but this one is well worth it! The cheese and cayenne in the crust really add a nice flavor to this dish. A definite make again for the next family brunch. Made for ZWT6.

      This was really divine! I have a confession to make, I have never, ever made home-made pastry dough of any kind. ::hanging head::: (hope I don't get kicked outta Zaar.) So, I did cheat and use store-bought. I also added some minced garlic (3 cloves) and some Herbs de Provence. And used extra-sharp cheddar and the half-and-half. We had this today with BLT Salad and will have the left-overs for breakfast. Thanks for posting, Jacquee! LOL Made for ZWT 6.
