    :)Shirl(:'s Note:

    This is a baking tip. I may have read this somewhere and stuck it way in the back of my mind. To have it jump back out a few days ago. So I'm putting here so I remember to do this again, just incase I stick it back in the back part of my brain again. If this was your idea I appologize for dublicating and let me know so I can eliminate this post and add yours to my long lost recipe cookbook :) I have tried this and it works! pretty well I might add.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 1



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (Best Foods, Heilmanns)
    • 1 double crust pie crust


    1. 1
      Make your pie, I made an apple pie.
    2. 2
      I had just put on the top crust and was thinking well here goes another wasted egg yolk, (Actually, I don't waste it I feed it to the dog), to egg wash the top.
    3. 3
      I like the glazey look and it helps hold sugar if I should decide to sprinkle some on the top crust.
    4. 4
      So, I'm thinking what else can I put on the top -- looking in refer.
    5. 5
      Hey! mayo it has eggs, oil and vinegar. I remember somewhere that someone had suggested putting vinegar in pie crust (another one for the deep dark areas of my brain, I should clean it out might be more interesting tid bits).
    6. 6
      So the rest of the story is I brushed the top crust with mayo, baked the pie the way I normally do.
    7. 7
      It worked out great :) was easier to use, and no left over yolk.
    8. 8
      Yes I will do this again.

      A tip as hot as knowing how to use a semicolon. Used on Caramelized Onion Rolls With Herb Butter.
