a small hole in the center.  Roll out the scraps of pastry and form a
leaf or rosette for the top.  Place this very lightly over the small
hole. Brush the pastry with milk, and bake at moderate heat, 350F, for
25-30 minutes. Cover the pastry with damp greaseproof paper when
partially cooked if the top seems to be getting too brown. Gently heat
the cream. When pie is cooked, remove from oven. Carefully lift off the
rosette and pour the cream in through the hole. Put back the rosette and
serve. (This pie forms a delicious soft jelly when cold.)
