  2. Cut Leek in to four lengthways, then each quarter into four, lay on baking sheet and drizzle lightly with butter and bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly cooked. Allow to cool.
  3. Cut pastry into three equal sections across the width to give 3 long strips. Cut these 3 sections into 5 squares.
