Latticed Blueberry Pie


In my last post I made a blueberry pie from Martha Stewart's Pies & Tarts. I didn't lattice the last pie because I thought it would be fussy and since the pie in the book is latticed I thought for my second pie I should at least try it. It turns out it wasn't fussy at all. As a matter of fact the cut out leaf patterned pastry was probably a bit more involved. Who knew? So here it is.



Unfortunately I didn't photograph the weaving of the strips of pastry dough. But it is quite simple to do with alternate flipping of the strips.

I didn't have a fluted pastry wheel so it probably isn't as asthetic as it could have been, but I was pleased with the way it turned out.


The recipe is on the previous post.

Both of your pies look fantastic--you really have a good hand at pastry.

Marie,
Thanks, I live for pie and since they're filled with fruit I have convinced myself that they are a healthy dessert.
