Your pastry can then be coated with this beaten egg-yolk, using a brush.
- Professionals use them instead what they call "dorure" (gilding), ie full eggs, beaten in a blender. In all bakeries, there is (in the fridge, otherwise it is a bad baker) a pot of dorure that expect to serve croissants, brioche, or other.
You can prepare it for advance and freeze, to do that, mix 2 or 3 eggs, and when they are well blended, pour into ice cube trays.
