A criss-cross Lattice Pie Crust makes a nice presentation and provides top crust without overpowering the pie. It’s simple and easy!
Then simply place some strips going one direction and top them with those going the other direction.
Alternatively, you can weave the top crust.
Lightly place the strips going one direction on top of the pie and fold them back half way. Add strips the other direction one at a time, weaving them under and over the other strips.
This is more work and the strips sometimes break, but you can just squeeze them back together. Weaving them makes a bit more elegant presentation.
