Tip: No Egg Wash Tip

Recipe by Shirl
READY IN: 5mins
YIELD: 1 pie


  • 12
    cup mayonnaise (Best Foods, Heilmanns)
  • 1
    double crust pie crust


  • Make your pie, I made an apple pie.
  • 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.
  • I like the glazey look and it helps hold sugar if I should decide to sprinkle some on the top crust.
  • So, I'm thinking what else can I put on the top -- looking in refer.
  • 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).
  • So the rest of the story is I brushed the top crust with mayo, baked the pie the way I normally do.
  • It worked out great :) was easier to use, and no left over yolk.
  • Yes I will do this again.
