Pie Crust Lattice

Prep Time: About 20 minutes Bake Time: 30-45 minutes, depending on your pie recipe Total time: 50-65 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Pre-made frozen pie crust, thawed and rolled out to 2 12-inch circles.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400
  2. Transfer one rolled-out crust to a 9 inch pie plate, letting some crust overhang all around.
  3. Press the crust gently into the bottom of the pie plate, and trim the extra from the edges, making sure you leave enough to cover the edge completely.
  4. Fill with your desired pie filling.
  5. Lay the remaining dough circle on a lightly floured surface and use a butter knife to cut into 10 fairly even strips.
  6. Lay 5 strips vertically across the pie filling. Starting with the left side, fold alternating strips back half way.
  7. Lay one strip horizontally across the center of the pie.
  8. Fold the strips back down, and fold back the alternate strips.
  9. Lay another strip horizontally across the vertical strips.
  10. Fold the strips back down, and fold back alternate strips.
  11. Repeat until all strips are used, and a crosshatch pattern has formed.
  12. Beat one egg, and use a pastry brush to coat top crust.
  13. Bake pie according to your recipe.
