1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Lightly grease and dampen a baking sheet. Roll out pastry to a 25 x 18cm rectangle and trim the edges. Transfer to the baking sheet. Brush with the beaten egg, then flute the edges with the back of a knife.
2. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the onion and leeks, then fry for 5 mins until soft. Stir in 1 tbsp of each of the herbs and a little seasoning. Arrange the leek mixture over the pastry to within 1 cm of the edges. (Can be frozen at this stage). Bake for 25 mins until the pastry and leeks are golden.
