HOW TO MAKE A GRID CRUST

  1. To make the lattice crust, use a rolling pin to flatten the top crust and then cut the pie dough into long strips.
  2. Then place half of them horizontally over the pie filling and make sure they are evenly distributed.
  3. Take the other half of the top crust slices and weave them in and out vertically so that they engage the first set of horizontal strips.
  4. You should have small, square spaces between the top crust strips so you can watch the pie fill through them.
  5. You should then brush the top crust with your egg rinse, sprinkle a little crushed cinnamon and coarse sugar over the top, put it in the oven and bake it.
  6. Once cooked to a golden brown color, take it out of the oven and let it sit on a rack or baking sheet until cool enough to eat, slightly warmer than room temperature.
