How to Lattice a Pie Crust


1 dough pie crust (homemade or store bought)


-On lightly floured surface, roll out dough.

-Cut into strips 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch wide.

-Place strips on pie with 1/2 inch in between each strip.

-Pull every other strip back half the way (horizontal).

-Place long strip in the middle perpendicular to the other strips (vertical).

-Unfold the strips you had previously folded half back (horizontal).

-Now fold the opposite strips (horizontal) back half ways and add another strip perpendicular (vertical) to the other strips, then fold the strips back.

-Continue on until you reach the end of the pie. Then do the same for the other half.

-Cut off extra hanging over. Fold over the under crust from the bottom crust and pinch them together to make a tight topping.

-Bake until golden Brown

I'm married and am very blessed to be the mother of a gorgeous little 2 year old named Mac. I live in good ol' North Dakota! I love to do many things. Laugh, love, write and cook. Mostly, I like to enjoy life to the fullest. That's probably why I love cooking so much. There is no right or wrong way of doing it. My day job keeps me very busy but its also extremely rewarding. I work for a company called Pride Inc. We serve individuals with developmental disabilities. So most of the people on my caseload are like my family. For me, I learned from my grandma that cooking brought people together. I associated it with happiness, love and togetherness and who doesn't want those things in life! So I've always tried to continue that in my own life with my own family. Nothing brings people together like a good meal. And a few good laughs!
