TEST KITCHEN TECHNIQUE
To create decorative leaves, while pie is cooling, roll remaining pastry to ⅛-inch thickness. Using leafshaped cookie cutter, cut out leaves, rerolling scraps as necessary; using knife tip, score surface of leaves to create veining. Arrange on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; brush with 1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp water. Bake in 350°F oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Place leaves around edge of cooled pie.
