Before we put our pie filling into our pie crust we are going to brush it with an egg white. So if you have, you want to have one egg white and just beat it up a little bit. It's not like an egg yolk so you won't be able to see the yolk bursting to know when you've beaten it enough you just want to make sure it's not going to have any membranes or anything in it. Then we are going to brush the pie crust, it's a little difficult to see because it is a clear egg wash on a cream color surface. But you can see where it's getting a little wet there and you just want to brush down the entire pastry with the egg wash. This is going to give it a glossy look to the crust that is being shown and it's also going to prevent the crust from getting soggy during the baking process. You just want to gently brush it all with it, you might not use the entire egg white it's fine of course I recommend tossing whatever you have left because it's going to be a small amount. There is really not much you can do for using it for so once you have everything all coated then it's on to our next step.
