After filling has boiled for 10 minutes, use a large ladle to scoop out approximately 1 cup sauce from the mixture and pour into a cup. Add cornstarch to the cup and stir until all lumps have dissolved. Add cornstarch mixture back to the pot; cook and stir until filling has thickened to your liking.

Bake bottom crust in the preheated oven for approximately 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, add filling, and cover with the top crust, making sure the edges are sealed. Make cute decorations with pastry cut-offs and use a knife to make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape. Lightly paint egg yolk over the top crust.
