How to Make a Lattice Pie Crust


Start Video Transcript

Hi, Kristy in the Rada Kitchen, and today I want to show you how to make a lattice top pie crust. I went ahead and made my traditional Crisco pie crust, I left it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. And I do have a video where I share that recipe with you. So now I’m ready to roll it out. We’re going to roll it the same thickness as we would with a traditional top crust.

So I rolled out my crust between wax paper, I made sure it fit at least over the edge of the pie. And now we want to cut this into half inch strips. I’m going to use this knife sleeve from the Rada knife. It’s about a half inch. And I’m going to use the Rada Pizza Cutter. I don’t know why, but I like to start in the middle. I make my first cut. And then just lay that there. Just kind of like a guide. So now I have that top crust cut. First we’re going to lay the middle one. We’re going to lay three of them first. Then we’re going to come back. So first we’re going to peel back the two outside ones, lay those back. Take a middle one going the other way. Lay those down. Take the middle one back. Put that one back. Take the next two outside ones again.

Now we have three going that way. Since these two are on top, we’re going to take that middle one, then the next one. Lay that one down, take the two outside ones, pull that back, lay that one down. So now we have to go this way, so I’m going to pull back the ones that are covered, this one and this one, then that one, and the two that are covered again, we’re going to pull back that one. Make sure you seal these down, because they will shrink, but you want them to stay in place. To get the traditional edge, make sure you seal that down. That’s how you make a lattice top pie.
