How to Make Lattice Pie Crust

Lattice pie refers to the design that goes on top of your pie prior to baking it. This step looks a lot more intimidating than it really is.

Let’s get started!

Chill the pie dough

It allows the gluten strands to settle down. It also makes it a lot easier to roll out when the dough is more firm.


Cut out 12 even strips of the pie dough. Place 6 strips of dough parallel to each other vertically from you.



Now peel back the odd numbers. So strip number 1,3, and 5.



Then place 1 strip of the dough horizontally closer towards you and place the odd strips back.



Now peel back the even numbers. So numbers 2, 4, and 6. and place another strip of dough horizontally again. Repeat this with the remaining strips of dough going back from odd to even numbers.


Once you get down this simple method of pie decorating, you will have the most gorgeous lattice pie top!
