DIRECTIONS

  • GLAZED: beat egg white with water - brush over pastry before baking.
  • SHINY: using a soft brush - brush on just enough cream to cover before baking.
  • SUGARY: Brush with milk, sprinkle with sugar before baking.
  • RICH BROWN: brush top with melted butter before baking.
  • And yes my favorite - lightly flick water over crust with fingertips, carefully tip to spread the water - sprinkle with sugar before baking. All so simple yet make for that added touch. Baking time for the pies - go with the suggested baking time your recipe calls for.
