Brush top of pastry lightly with egg mixture. If desired, arrange the reserved cutouts on pastry; brush lightly with egg mixture. Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes or until filling is bubbly and pastry is golden. Pastry for a Double-Crust Pie In a large bowl stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening and butter until pieces are pea size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the ice water over part of the flour mixture; toss gently with a fork.
