Homemade Lattice Pie Crust

I shared tips for making homemade pie crust the other day and wanted to show you how to make a lattice top for homemade fruit pies. It’s not hard and even more fun to do with one of your kids. My daughter, Teapot helped me out.

Using the pie crust recipe HERE, divide recipe in half, rolling half out for the bottom of the pie and the other half to create the lattice topping.

Roll the dough out into a round on a well floured surface. Cut dough into 1 inch strips.

Starting with the center strip (use the longer strips in the center of the pie and the shorter strips toward the edges), lay it in the middle of the pie.

Take the strip next to it and lay it across the first strip.

Then gently fold one over the other and add another strip.

Lay the strip back, then add another strip over, weaving the dough.

Keep doing this until the pie is covered.

Roll up the edges, pressing the crust against the rim of the pie plate.

Then crimp the edges.

Bake until warm and bubbly.
