Add the eggs and water and start the processor until the dough forms a ball. Remove the dough from the processor and form it into balls the same size. Wrap in a plastic film and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC)
  • Brown the leeks and lardoons in a saucepan and mix the other ingredients un a bowl.
  • Sprinkle a ball of dough with rice flour and roll it between two sheets of parchment paper until it is about 1/2 cm thick. Spread the crust in a 9 inch pie pan. Keep the other ball of dough in the freezer for later use. Cook the pie crust in the oven for 7 or 8 minutes.
  • Remove the pie crust from the oven and add leeks and the egg mixture. Cook in the oven for 40 to 50 minutes until the center swells somewhat and the surface is golden brown.
