We love a classic lattice top on our pie. It looks intricate, but weaving a lattice out of pastry is simple if you follow our steps. Watch our tip video to see how it’s done, and check out how the finished pie should look.

Instructions: Line a pie pan with pie dough. Cut ¾” strips out of the remainder of your rolled-out pie dough.
Scoop the filling into your prepared crust. Brush the edge of the crust with water to help the lattice strips better adhere.
Weave a top crust by placing strips vertically across the pie, leaving 1 ½” of space between each.
Fold every other strip back to the edge of the pie.
Place a strip horizontally across the pie. Fold down the folded-back strips.
Fold back every other vertical strip (the ones you didn’t do in the first step).
Place a second strip horizontally across the pie and fold down the folded-back vertical strips.
Repeat the steps, moving across the pie until complete.
Crimp the edge if desired. Brush the crust with 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon cold water, and top with sparkling sugar.
