    1. 1
      Fry the onion in the olive oil until translucent, add the leek and keep aside.
    2. 2
      In the meanwhile blanch the spinach or Swiss chard. Cool under current water and squeeze out the water.
    3. 3
      Add all the ingredients for the filling (reserve 2 tablespoons egg for the topping) and adjust salt and pepper to your taste. Divide into 12 portions.
    4. 4
      Mix all the ingredients for the crust together adding the last spoons water only if necessary one by one. Kneet until a nice dough forms.
    5. 5
      Roll out the dough 45 to 60 cm (18 to 24 inch).
    6. 6
      Cut into 12 squares of 15 cm (6 inch), reserve little dough for decoration if you like.
    7. 7
      Insert the fist square into muffin mold. Spoon in a portion of filling. Close first the opposite angles and then the next ones. Fix brushing some of the reserved beaten egg.
    8. 8
      Repeat for all muffins.
    9. 9
      For decoration you can use the rest of the dough (for example cutting off small hearths), nigella or sesame seeds if desired.
    10. 10
      Bake 35-40 minutes at 180°C (350 °F) or until golden and through (heat and timing are basing it on convection oven).
    11. 11
      Serve warm or cold.

      I absolutely loved the filling! I happened to have a small boiled potato which I grated into the mixture and topped with some grated feta, delicious! As to the crust, I would have preferred a more flaky, puff pastry type crust. This one seemed a bit doughy. The next time, and there will be a next time, I am going to use store bought puff pastry or even phyllo dough. Made for the "Down at the Farm" hoe-down. Spring 2012
