Heat a griddle or frying pan over a high heat. Toss leeks in rapeseed oil and cook until charred.
Mix together crème fraîche, egg yolk, coarse-grain mustard, thyme leaves and ground nutmeg. Season with black pepper.
Roll shortcrust pastry out onto a baking tray. With a sharp knife, score a 2cm border into the edge of the pastry and spread the crème fraîche inside this line. Top with a horizontal line of leeks and sprinkle with blue stilton, crumbled, and walnuts, chopped.
Fold the pastry border over the leeks and crimp the edges. Beat egg and brush over the pastry.
