How To Make a Lattice-Topped Pie



  1. Roll out first disk of dough and fill according to recipe instructions. Then, roll out second disk of dough.
  2. Use plain or decorative pastry wheel cutter to slice dough into approximately 1-inch wide strips. You’ll need 10 strips. Note: you can get creative with the thickness of the lattice and how many strips you use.
  3. Place 5 dough strips on top of pie, spaced evenly.
  4. Pull back second and fourth strips halfway and place another strip down center of pie, perpendicular to first set.
  5. Lay folded strips back down. Now fold first, third, and fifth strips back and place another perpendicular dough strip on top of pie.
  6. Unfold those strips, and again fold second and fourth strips. Lay one more perpendicular strip.
  7. Rotate the pie 180 degrees and repeat on other side.
  8. When you are all done with your lattice, trim any long strips so that they match up with overhang of bottom crust. Pinch them together to seal, fold under and crimp as desired.
  9. And that’s it! Bake as directed by filling recipe and enjoy!
