I made this Apple Pie with Lacy Whole Wheat Lattice Crust to celebrate the milestone of having 200k amazing followers on Instagram. It’s not just any pie, but a lacy lattice pie. It looks super fancy, but really it’s simple to make with the right tools.

The tools I used to make this Apple Pie with Lacy Whole Wheat Lattice Crust:

  1. A JK Adams Ultimate Pastry Board to make rolling your dough even easier (from JK Adams)
  2. A Stenciled Rolling Pin to make the dough lacy and extra festive (Mood Wood from JK Adams)
  3. An Emile Henry Pie Dish which is as beautiful as it is functional (from Emile Henry)
  4. A Vermont Marble Pie Server, so getting it to the plate is just as spectacular (from JK Adams)

To get the best pattern results rolling pin:

  • When making your pie dough, don’t leave large chuncks of butter, which cause steam to form, giving a flaky crust, but it also causes the crust to bust a move in the oven and blows out the design. So, you want a tender, even crust, but not as flaky. This means you just want to work the butter into the flour a bit more than I typically recommend. If you are using a crust recipe that uses a leavener (baking powder usually) leave it OUT of the mix or the design will disappear and the crust puffs up.
  • When using the stenciled rolling pin, you need to roll the dough out to about 1/4-inch thick with a regular rolling pin, then use the stenciled pin, dusted with plenty of flour and press with some pressure to create the pattern. If you are too tentative, the pattern will bake out and not be noticeable.
