Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare pastry as directed; line a 9-inch pie plate with the pastry circle. Transfer filling to pastry-lined pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Weave pastry strips over filling in a lattice pattern. Press strip ends into bottom pastry edge. Fold bottom pastry edge over strip ends; seal and crimp edge.
