Nothing in the House Pie Crust
This recipe comes from Emily Hilliard, whose blog Nothing in the House celebrates all things pie-related. The crust calls for half a beaten egg. Emily sets the other half aside to brush on the top crust, for a golden shine. If you're not baking right away, you can use the whole beaten egg in the dough, and decrease the amount of water by 1 1/2 tablespoons.
