It’s pie season, y’all, and there is nothing like a homemade pie with a sweet lattice crust. And we’ll let you in on a little secret; it’s way easier than it looks!
Follow our step by step- how to and you’ll be making your own pretty pie in no time.

imageStep 1: Use a ruler and a pizza cutter to make straight and even strips of dough.

imageStep 2: Lay dough strips evenly across the top of your filled pie.

imageStep 3: Fold back every other strip back onto itself.

imageStep 4: Lay one strip of dough perpendicularly across the other strips.

imageStep 5: Unfold the strips that were folded back over the perpendicular strip.

imageStep 6: Now fold back the strips that are under the perpendicular strip (they are also the strips that you did not fold back last time). Lay another strip of dough parallel to the perpendicular strip.

imageStep 7: Repeat this weaving technique until the whole pie is covered with the lattice crust.

imageStep 8: Trim the edges of the crust and the strips.

imageStep 9: Fold the crust over and crimp the edges. Brush with an egg wash, and sprinkle with a little sugar. Now all that’s left to do is bake and enjoy!

Here at the test kitchen we always say practice makes perfect!

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
