  4. Add the peas and set aside.
  5. In a saucepan, melt the rest of the butter over low heat, and add the flour.
  6. Cook over low heat without colouring. Stir the roux from time to time.
  7. Pour in the chicken broth while stirring to prevent lumps in the velouté.
  8. Simmer for 15 minutes.

  12. Pour the mixture into a 23 to 25 cm (9 to 10 in.) ovenproof pan.
  13. Place the pastry shell or dough over the mixture (dough must be 1 cm (1/2 in.) larger than the pan).
  14. Make a slit in the centre of the dough. Brush the top with the egg wash.  
  15. Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top of the pie is golden brown.
