Making a lattice crust is actually pretty simple and always makes a pie look pretty!  If you can weave, you can make a lattice crust!

The photos below show the technique to make the crust on a small scale… because these were actually the crusts for my Apple Pie Cookies which you should definitely check out!

1.  Lay your strips of pastry across the pie (or tart) one way leaving spaces in between.  (Approx. 1″ apart for a standard sized pie).

2.  Fold every other piece of pastry back half way.  Add one strip of dough across the strips that are already laid down.  Unfold the folded strips.

3.  Repeat folding every other piece of pastry back half way and weaving the pastry strips until the pie/tart is covered.

4.  Break off the excess dough with your fingers and press against the edge of your pan or the edge of the bottom crust to seal.
