How To Make a Lattice Top

video

Many of my friends call me when they have cooking questions and I'm always glad to help, if I can. When I first moved out, I used to call my Mom (almost daily) with cooking questions. Now, I'm happy to be able to pass that info along to my friends. I've never taken any cooking classes or anything. I just read and watch and learn by trial and error. Hopefully through this series of "how to" clips, I'll be able to demonstrate a few techniques that I've learned. I'm hoping to have many friends and relatives as guests in my cooking videos. Let me know if you'd like to do one with me! My best friend, Paul, was nice enough to be in my very first one. Thanx, Paul!
Today's video shows you how to weave strips of pie crust pastry to form a lattice top. It's really a lot simpler to do than you might think, and everyone is always SO impressed by it! So, the next time you feel like having some pie, don't buy one. Make one at home! You'll be so glad you did because it's better when you make it!

Special thanx to Michael and Trish for helping to make this video possible!!
