Shaping a Rope Edge Pie Crust

A Rope Edge is suitable for a single- or double-crust pie.

The pastry should be trimmed to 1/2 in. beyond the rim of the pie plate for a single-crust pie and 1 in. for a double-crust pie. This overhang is then turned under to form the built-up edge.

Make a fist with one hand and press your thumb at an angle into the dough. Pinch some of the dough between your thumb and index finger.

Repeat at about 1/2-in. intervals around the crust. For a looser-looking rope, position your thumb at a wider angle and repeat at 1-in. intervals. ADD PHOTO HERE
