When I make pies, or empanadas, or any crust covered baked thing I like to put an egg wash on it for extra lustrousness. The egg wash is a mixture of egg and cream, in these cases anyway, when I am done I’ve used about a teaspoon of it and I hate to waste it so I decided to microwave it rather than dirty a frying pan. Here are the results of 2 different outings. I am not sure what I did differently, probably just a matter of timing.
The first one was totally luscious. The second was like egg jerky. I ate it but I’ll eat nearly anything that isn’t anchovies or smoked salmon.
