2 Tbsp  water
2 Tbsp  unsalted butter; cold

roll 1/2 the short crust pastry to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out a 
14-inch circle. line a 9-inch pie plate with the pastry, trim away the 
excess and crimp the edge. 
roll out the rest of the pastry to 1/4-inch thickness. cut the pastry 
into 1/2-inch strips. on a piece of parchment paper or waxed paper 
weave the strips of pastry into a lattice that will cover the top of a 
9-inch pie plate with 1-inch of overhang. refrigerate the pie shell 
and lattice for at least 30 minutes. 
meanwhile, cut the apple quarters into 1/4-inch thick slices. toss the 
apples with the sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, nutmeg, and salt. 
whisk together the egg yolk and water to make an egg wash. brush the 
inside edge of the pastry with the egg wash. arrange the apples in the 
pie shell and dab the top with pieces of cold butter. slide the 
lattice top over the apples. press the pastry of the lattice firmly on 
the crimped edge to seal the 2 together. brush the lattice with egg 
wash. place the pie on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
