How Do You Make A Homemade Pie Crust?
Making a homemade pie crust is easy and totally worth the extra effort. You can use a storebought pie crust if you want, but I love a homemade crust.
For a lattice crust you want to make a double pie crust, and use one disc of dough for the lattice crust.
How To Make A Lattice Pie Crust- Step By Step
Step 1: To create a lattice top, you want to start by rolling out your second pie dough disc and cut into 1-inch strips. I used my pizza cutter to do this, but a knife works as well.
Step 2: From there you want to lay 5 strips of dough on top of the filling.
Step 3: Then fold back every other strip.
Step 4: And lay another strip of dough going in the opposite direction. Then fold the strips you folded back back into place.
Step 5: Repeat this step again by folding back the other two strips you did NOT fold back
Step 6: Now lay a pie strip down going in the horizontal position. You will see this pie strip now lies across first 3 strips you originally folded back.
Step 7: Fold the strips back into place.
Step 8: Repeat Steps 3-7 until your entire pie has a lattice crust!
Once your crust is ready, you just need to egg wash it and then bake!
What Is An Egg Wash For Pie Crust?
An egg wash is a great little baker’s trick. Simply whisk together 1 egg with 1 Tablespoon water or milk and then brush on to your crust.
The egg wash helps to brown the crust when baking.
