Do You Brush pie crust with egg white or egg yolk?

Since there is protein in both the yolk and the white, any whole egg or yolk will make the crust both shiny and brown. The white, on the other hand, will only promote browning without contributing any significant gloss to the crust. Egg washes may contain water, milk, or cream, and sometimes salt.

For filled double-crust pies, increase the baking time by up to 10 minutes and cover the top of the pie with aluminum foil if it starts to get too dark. Place aluminum pie plates on a preheated baking sheet for a well-browned bottom crust and for added stability when moving pies out of the oven.

A pumpkin or custard pie filling separates from the crust due to shrinkage. This is a normal part of the cooling process. The fact is, all baked goods shrink as they cool due to the evaporation of moisture during baking. In a pie, the filling and crust are shrinking in opposite directions.

How do I know when my apple pie is done?

Most say the pie is done if the crust is brown and the filling is bubbling. The truth is it needs to bubble for at least 6 to 10 minutes to properly cook the fruit. This depends on how ripe the fruit was, how thin it was cut and the variety of the fruit. But still, this is not the sure way to see if your pie is done.
