- Remove from heat and cool.
- . Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch and one-fourth teaspoon salt.
- Cut the butter in with a pastry blender, fork or two knives until it is in very tiny bits.
- Add one egg (a fork works great for this) and mix it until a dough forms.
- (Dough can also be made in a food processor, or in in a stand mixer.)
- . On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to a 12-inch circle.
- Place the dough in a 9-inch pie plate and press to remove any air bubbles.
- Crimp the edges, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- . While the quiche shell chills, mix the heavy cream and sour cream in a medium bowl.
- Whisk in the remaining three eggs.
- Add a pinch each nutmeg, salt and pepper and combine to form a batter.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- . Remove the quiche shell from the refrigerator and spread the leek and onion mixture evenly over the base.
- Sprinkle the ham and then the cheese over the leeks and onions.
- Pour in the batter and place the quiche in the oven.
- . Bake until puffed and golden, about 25 to 30 minutes or puffed and golden
- . Remove from the oven and cool slightly on a rack.
- Serve warm or at room temperature.
