  2. 2 Roll out the dough and lay it in the butter-and -flour-lined baking tin; pierce holes in it with a fork. Spread the cheese out on the dough. Whisk the milk, cream and eggs together, season with salt and pepper, and pour onto the cheese.
  3. 3 Bake the tart for 20-30 mins. until golden brown in the middle of the oven, preheated to 220°C.
