Fold the extra pastry over the filling, pleating it so that it lies flat. Brush the pastry with the egg and sprinkle with additional sugar (about 1 tablespoon). Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until the crust is golden. Cool on a rack for 45 minutes. Serve with the ice cream.Note: If using Bing cherries, reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup.
