How to Make Decorative Pie Crusts

Ruffle Edge Pie Crust: Used for a single- or double-crust pie. Trim pastry 1/2-in. beyond edge of pie plate (1 in. for a double-crust pie). Turn the overhanging pastry under to form the rolled edge. Position your thumb and index finger about 1 in. apart on the edge of the crust, pointing out. Position the index finger on your other hand between the two fingers and gently push the pastry toward the center in an upward direction. Continue around the edge.

Braided Edge Make a braided edge by cutting 12-inch-long, 1/4-inch-thick strips of dough and braiding them together. Brush the edge of the crust or the bottom of the braids with water; secure. Trim braids equal to circumference.
