This is an excellent description. I have made them before and while I find them to be fairly easy, your description is helpful for those who are intimidated about this process. And I think yThe steps you take makes it neater than mine is.
I am so pleased for your inspiration to tell us how to make a lattice pie crust, yesterday I made an apple pie and when I was finished doing the lattice pie crust and put it in the oven I was so pleased with it, thank you so much ☺️
I’m so glad you liked the apple pie Paige!
Thanks so much for the easy instructions. I’m looking forward to making my first lattice top pie crust.
Thank you! This has always been a mystery to me and you explained it so clearly!
Fantastic tutorial! Thanks so much for this!!
Thank you. I have wanted to do a lattice crust for so long and have been intimidated. This is a perfect technique!
does anyone know if changing from a whole shell crust to a lattice work crust will change the baking outcome? I am making a mile high apple pie for Thanksgiving and thinking about changing the top crust, but I don’t want to mess up the inside of the pie.
Hi, Kitty! Using a lattice crust shouldn’t change the baking time or affect the interior. Enjoy!
Hi Kitty, it sort of depends on how you make your lattice crust. A closed lattice will be the same cooking time as a regular pie. But an open weave lattice, like the one in the photos here may cause more evaporation of the filling. It’s like a pie top with a lot of vents! So pies that may be on the runny side normally (cherry pie, blueberry pie) might experience more thickening of the filling if using a lattice top. With a mile high apple pie it shouldn’t make a difference given the amount of filling that’s in that pie.
Simplest instructions. Thank you. I had no problems doing it on my first try.
Thank you!!Turned out perfect and won me a ribbon at the fair!
