Notes

Now that you have the pie crust down, it is time to get fancy. Here are three easy ways to decorate your crust and make your pie look that much more amazing.

NUMBER ONE

Pinch Method
To make a pinched edge, line pie plate with pie dough and trim overhang to 1/2 inch. Using the thumb and forefinger of one hand, pinch a small piece of dough while also pushing with the thumb of the other hand. Continue around crust.

NUMBER TWO

Cookie Cutter Method
To make a cookie cutter edge, line pie plate with pie dough and trim all overhang. Collect all overhang and roll out extra dough to 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to make designs and attach them with a small dab of water. Continue around crust.

NUMBER THREE

Fork Method
To make a forked edge, line pie plate with pie dough and trim overhang to 1/2 inch. Using the back of the fork, gently press lines into the edge of the dough. Continue around crust.
