How to Weave a Lattice-Top Pie Crust

by Art Sterling

Supplies

  • 2 Pie crusts
  • 1 pie plate
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Cut top crust into 14 strips. I use a scallop pastry wheel because it looks nice.

    Step 2

    Take every other strip and lay across filling.

    Step 3

    Fold every other one of those strips back halfway and place a long strip (from those remaining) across the top.

    Step 4

    Like so. Then fold the strips back up.

    Step 5

    Fold the other strips down and add another cross strip. Repeat until the top half is covered.

    Step 6

    Do the same for the bottom half. Fold back half the strips, add a cross strip, fold back,up.

    Step 7

    Trim or fold under the edge crusts and pinch decoratively.

    Step 8

    Bake the pie, let it cool and eat it. Yumm!
