Tip: Egg Wash #1: Pie and Tart Crust

In DEFINITION: Egg Wash, I described egg washes in general.

What are they good for besides just making something shiny?

Well, if you ever have a problem with soggy crusts in pies or tarts, you can use an egg wash to prevent that. When baking pies or tarts, brush the inside bottom of the cooked pie shell with the white of an egg. This will insure a dry under crust.
