    1. Pastry: Sieve the flour into a heap on the work surface. Cool you hands by running them under cold water. Form a hollow in the middle of the flour and pour in the cold butter and salt.
    2. Gradually add the water. With cold hands mix the dough with your fingers until all ingredients are well mixed.
    3. Knead the dough; it should remain soft and not be elastic. Form the dough into a ball then cover with a cloth and leave for about two hours in the refrigerator.
    4. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C. Grease a baking tray well with butter.
    5. Roll the dough flat on a floured work surface then lay it in the baking tray. Prick with a fork several times. Spread the grated cheese over the dough.
    6. Filling: Whisk the milk, cream and egg then season with salt and pepper.
    7. Pour over the cheese and bake pie in preheated oven 30-40 minutes. Surface should be well browned
