Roll out second ball of pastry to an equal size and place on top. Pinch sides together to form a seal. Make six slits on top of the dough. Beat reserved egg white with a fork. Brush on top of pastry dough.

    5. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.

    6. To make glaze combine icing sugar, water and vanilla in a small bowl. Mix well. Drizzle on top of hot tart.
