  7. Pour the mixture into the prepared pie dish and dot with butter.
  8. Cover the top of the pie with the second rolled-out pie crust, trimming any excess dough.
  9. Use a sharp knife to cut a few slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  10. Brush the beaten egg over the top crust.
  11. Bake the pie for 45-55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  12. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
