  1. First prepare the pastry: dilute the yeast in warmed milk and melt the butter.
  2. Sift the flour in a large bowl and add gradually the milk and yeast mixture and melted butter.
  3. Beat in the egg and salt.
  4. Knead the dough vigorously, shape it into a ball, wrap it in greaseproof paper and leave it to rise in a warmish place for 2 hours.
  5. Meanwhile chop the chicons finely and stew them gently in 30 g butter for about 10 minutes.
  6. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the cream, add the cream cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Roll out the pastry fairly thin, line a pie plate or flan dish with it, and prick the surface with a fork.
  8. Spread the chicons over the pastry and pour the cream mixture over them.
  9. Cook in a moderately hot oven for 15–20 minutes or until the flan has set and browned.
