                                                        Hints from Grand
Check out our pie crust recipe Grands Best Pie Crust Ever recipe. Grands favorite way to seal the two pie crusts together is to just use a fork. You just have to take your fork and press the two pie crusts together, all the way around the pie. Grand also likes to brush the top of the pie with a beaten egg white and sprinkle it with sugar. It makes for a very pretty pie.
