How To Make a Spectacular Lattice Work Pie Crust

I just love throwing dinner parties for family and friends. Each time, the first thing I decide is what we will serve for dessert. My easy Peach Pie made with frozen peaches.  For some variety, I made a pretty lattice work pie crust top and added a dough cutout - a peach with leaves.

Here is how you do it:

Make classic pie crust dough for a top and bottom crust or buy prepared pie crust dough and bring it to room temperature per directions on the package.

1. Flute the edges of the bottom pie crust. 

2. Pour the prepared filling into it.

3. Cut the top crust into strips.

4. Lay the strips across the top, leaving 1 - 2 inches open in between.

5. Weave the remaining strips through the first ones, going the opposite direction, like weaving a basket.

6. Fold the edges under and pinch them, fluting them along with the bottom crust.

7. Peach Cut-out: use a small glass to cut out a circle for the peach. Using a knife, cut two or three leaf-shaped pieces of dough. Place the leaves on an edge of the pie and lay the circle of the leaves onto the part where the leaves meet. Press lightly.

8. Baking Tip: cover the edges of the pie with aluminum foil prior to baking to keep them from burning.

9. Bake according to recipe directions. If you are interested in making that fabulous peach pie, here is the recipe ⇒ Easy Peach Pie
