1 cup water
Pastry for 1 (9-inch) single-crust pie*

  2. Remove ham from oven and drain. Cool slightly.
  3. Meanwhile, roll out pastry dough into a long rectangle 3/8-inch thick.
  4. Spread orange marmalade over ham. Place ham on one side of pastry dough and fold over to enclose ham. Brush dough with beaten egg. Place in an ungreased baking pan.
  5. Increase oven temperature to 375°F (190°C) and bake for 45 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing.

Note: Directions are for a bone-in, fully cooked ham. Also called “ready-to-eat” or “heat-and-serve” ham. A “cook-before-eating” ham must be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F (70°C), approximately 18 to 20 minutes per pound.
