Lattice Crust Tutorial

Pies with a lattice top always look more beautiful and tasty than the ordinary, boring “flat top” with vents. Luckily, they are also easy to make. Here are step by step instructions so you can make a lattice top on your next pie.

Pour filling into unbaked pie shell.

Roll out second half of pie dough. Using pizza cutter or knife, cut pie dough into strips.

Take 5 strips and gently arrange across top of pie, allowing the extra dough to hang over the edge.

Peel back two of the original strips and gently lay one new strip over the three remaining strips that are still laying over the pie.

Fold the two strips back onto the pie and peel back the other three strips. Lay a new strip of dough over the two original strips.

Continue working in this pattern until there are 10 total strips of dough woven to cover the pie.

Cut off remaining dough and roll up the sides decoratively.
