In a small bowl, beat the egg yolk and milk. Brush mixture over top crust.

Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.

Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 40-45 minutes more or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.

2Pastry Pie Crust:

Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl.

Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Stir in the ice water, a Tablespoon at a time, until the crust mixture forms a ball.

Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Sprinkle flour onto rolling surface. Roll dough out, then divide in half. Roll each half to fit a 9-inch pie plate.

Place crust in pie plate, pressing evenly into the bottom and sides.
