  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  7. Allow the pie to cool.
  8. Increase oven heat to 425F degrees.
  9. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to 2 inches wider than the dish.

  12. Make a hole in the center of the pie and use pastry trimmings to decorate.
  13. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until risen and golden brown.
