6) Allow the mixture to cool and then out it in the pastry shell.
8) Take the remaining pastry and roll it out. Cut into thin strips.
9) Over the pie, arrange the strips in lattice form and press the ends of the strips properly down onto the edge of the pastry.
10) Brush with a beaten egg and bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes.
