  4. Add more ice water, a tablespoon at a time, mix well after each addition until the dough just barely begins to hold together

  7. Wrap each one in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 20min

  8. Roll out one disk with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface to a 12-inch circle; about 1/8 of an inch thick.

  9. Carefully place onto a 9-inch pie plate. Gently press the pie dough down so that it lines the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Use a pair of kitchen scissors to trim the dough to within 1/2 inch of the edge of the pie dish. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for later

  10. Roll out another disk with a rolling pin. Cut to 1-inch wide strips and knit to a web. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for later

  5. Brush the top with a light, even coat of egg wash

  6. Place on lowest rack in oven preheated to 450 °F (230 °C). Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350 °F (175 °C). Bake for 30 to 35 minutes longer. Serve warm or cold
