How to Make a Lattice Pie Crust

Roll out pie crust. Using pastry wheel (or pizza cutter), slice crust into nine 3/4" pieces.

Lay 5 pieces over crust.

When doing this, pick up every other piece so that the ones left will all fit nicely on the pie.
You will not use the end pieces.

Peel back every other piece.

Lay one piece just to the right of the middle of the pie.

Fold the three pieces back over.

Fold back the other two pieces, lay down a piece and fold the two pieces back over.

Do the same thing on the other side of the pie...

...and you're all done!

Seal around the edge and flute.

Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on the top if you'd like.

To keep the edges of my pie from browning too quickly, I use to cover the edges with foil. Using this inverted pie plate is even easier! The one I use came from one of those over-size store bought pies - it's the perfect size to cover a nine inch pie plate - just trim out the middle!
