the dough in half. Working quickly, press half of the dough into and

of plastic wrap, and invert onto apples. Remove remaining plastic.
Trim edges and decoratively crimp using your fingers. Brush lightly
with egg/water mixture, and sprinkle with the remaining 2 teaspoons
sugar. With a sharp knife, cut slits into pastry. Transfer to oven
and bake until golden brown, about 1 hour. Makes one 9-inch pie.
