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!
