Best "wash" for piecrust?

The last pie I made, I beat an egg and used that as my wash for the crust, followed by generous sprinkles of turbinado (coarse) sugar. I think I like this wash has a better flavor than a milk/sugar or water/sugar application.

What about the rest of you?

Um...I used some International foods coffee flavouring last time around and it was the best ever. LOL. I know, bad Alix.

To me, the wash I choose for a pie depends upon the filling and the effect I want on the top crust. the Eggy washes usually result in a very shiny crust, and sometimes I like the "matte" effect.

Mudbug, I do just what you do (on the rare occasion that I actually make a pie). I stick to tarts, mostly.

I poured it on my pastry brush and brushed the top. Worked like a charm.
