For these snowflake shapes, firmly press the snowflake plunger cutter into the center of each of the 2-inch rounds and cut out snowflakes.

Step 5 -Seal the potpies.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the egg and 1 teaspoon of water in a small bowl. This will be your binding agent. Brush the edges of the pastry with the egg mixture. Place the 2-inch rounds on top.

Seal by pressing edges of dough pieces together. Using the edge of a mixing spoon (any rounded stick will do) press around the edges of the pie. Brush the tops of each pie with the beaten egg.
