I'm kind of just starting out making pies-but I found this book intriquing and interesting enough for me to want to at least attempt to try a few of these pies-the variety of crusts and combinations of ingredients were great. I also loved the fact he mentioned the variety of apple(since I'm a Hudson Valley gal. An all-around great book! I Even won my first apple pie contest !!!

An egg wash is the best way to give your pie or other pastry a beautifully browned crust. Gently beat an egg and thin with a little milk or water, then brush on the crust before it goes in the oven. The protein in the egg browns in the oven and also gives the pastry additional strength.
