There are a zillion recipes for pastry crust out there. I have seen some that add the yolk for enrichment....I am not in that camp. There is also the egg wash treatment (suppose that would be the whole egg...for sure the egg white)... for color (I do this when sprinkling sugar or making little leaves and doggies and Mustang convertibles for decos as well ;-) and need them to stay put.   mimi

Just IMO but I miss those days when dining out meant that's what you did for a good 4 hours on a Saturday nite....when you were naked without the pearls and dainty but oh so expensive diamond earrings and JUST the right amount of scent on your wrists and behind the ears....
