DIRECTIONS

  • Wisk egg to almost froth.
  • Wisk in Half & Half.
  • Stir in Salt to dissolve.
  • Set aside for 3 minutes or more. NOTE: Adding salt breaks down the proteins and thins the white. This makes it easier to apply. Waiting a few minutes or more allows the salt time to work its magic.
  • Brush on risen Pastry Dough evenly. NOTE: If you don't have a pastry brush, you can use a folded paper towel -- just take care to spread the wash evenly with this "tool.".
