  2. While that is "working" prepare the pie crust.

  4. Line pie-plate with bottom pastry; pour in filling; dot with butter.
  5. Roll out remaining pastry; place over filling; trim, seal and flute edges; cut five decorative VENT-holes in the top, lay those pieces artfully over the crust.
  6. Brush top with milk, sprinkle with sugar.
