A question about a recipe: Vanilla Bean Cardamom Peach Pie

F7255c8e fc62 4a40 8e2b c11352b083a9  peach pie

I have a question about step 3 on the recipe "Vanilla Bean Cardamom Peach Pie" from piccantedolce. It says:

"Remove second disc of dough from the refrigerator and roll out to just large enough to fit over the top of pie. Remove pie plate from freezer. Carefully pour peach mixture into plate, mounding slightly in the middle. Dot with butter and cover with top crust." How much butter?

Usually this is up to your discretion. There's no formula here, as you aren't worried about a ratio in the way you would be with the pie crust. The butter is merely used to impart extra flavor to the juice that will develop. The dots should be a bit spread out, but they should cover sparsely. Maybe 9 or 10. You can probably use about a tablespoon of butter. Maybe a bit more.

I just dot it on the filling, usually about a tbsp or 2
