If pastry dough does not form a ball easily, add up to 1 tablespoon additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time.
To easily transfer pastry to baking pan, fold pastry in half; fold in half again. Place folded corner at center of pan. Unfold pastry carefully.
Top pastry should be rolled on lightly floured surface slightly larger than bottom pastry to allow pastry to cover filling easily.
