There is nothing better to give a nice golden glow to pastry than a wash made of eggs and a splash of milk (a little for each egg used). You get a nice colour and a little bit of shine too.
Give the whole lot a good whisking and then thoroughly cover the pastry surface using a pastry brush.
Here is a quick comparison. Both were cooked for the same time but only the sausage roll on the right has been coated.
