Remarks
This works best with Mimolette, preferably aged, but if you don't have any, use any other cheese you like (Comté, Gruère, Cheddar, etc.).

You can bake the emplty pastry base blind for 10 minutes to make it crisper, but this is not essential.
Keeping
A few days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
