How-to Twist Lattice Designs

Roll out dough into a 12-in. circle. With a fluted pastry wheel, pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut dough into 1/2-in.- to 1-in.-wide strips.

Gently twist each strip loosely and lay it across the top of the pie as you would for a regular lattice crust. Lay twisted strips in rows about 1/2 in. to 3/4 in. apart.

Fold every other strip halfway back. Starting at the center, add strips at right angles, lifting every other strip as the cross strips are put down. Continue until lattice is completed.
