Tips

To make a woven top crust, you'll need another 1/2 recipe of the pastry to use for the top crust. For top crust, roll out dough to form a 20x10-inch rectangle. Cut 10x3/4-inch strips. Place one strip down the center of the pie over the filling. Place a second strip at a right angle to the first, forming an X. Place a third strip next to the first strip, then place a fourth strip next to the second strip. Place a fifth strip on the other side of the first strip and a sixth strip on the other side of the second strip. You'll be forming a square of solid pastry in the center. Repeat adding strips in this order until you cover the top of the pie. Trim strips around edge. Tuck strips under bottom crust. For a shiny finish, brush the top crust with milk. Sprinkle with sugar.
