Learn how to make a simple egg wash to give your pies, scones, biscuits and other baked goods a crisp, golden brown, glossy finish. It’s the perfect final touch!


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Add the egg and water to a small mixing bowl. Whisk vigorously until well incorporated and thin enough to spread smoothly onto baked goods.
  2. If needed, add a little more water to thin it out so it can easily be brushed with a pastry brush onto baked goods before baking them.
  3. Egg washes are used to brush on pastries, breads, pie crusts, biscuits, scones and more before baking them so they bake up with a beautiful, bright, golden brown finish.
