  10. Line a deep-dish pie plate with one round of the prepared pastry. Pour the vegetable mixture into the pastry shell.

  11. Prepare the top pastry by cutting a 2 to 3-inch hole in the center of the round using a knife or a decorative cookie cutter.

  12. Moisten the edges of the bottom round with water.

  13. Place the top round of prepared pastry on top of the filling, pressing around the edges and crimping to seal.

  14. Brush the top of the pastry with the egg and milk mixture.
