Tips

Instead of individual servings, you can prepare this as one double-crust pie. Prepare 1/2 of the pastry recipe and divide into 2 balls. Roll out each ball into a 12-inch circle. Transfer one pastry circle to a 9-inch pie plate. Add filling. Brush edges of pastry with water. Place second pastry circle atop filling. Continue as directed. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool for 15 minutes before serving.
