“This Thanksgiving I decided to top all pies by knitting the lattice crust of my homemade spiced apple pie. It was kind of like being a kid playing with playdo all night in the kitchen… for 3 hours!
I used Trader Joe’s Pie Crust, with trips in and out of the freezer when it got too sticky. Chop sticks and straws helped keep my warm hands off and work in the small spaces.
I struggled to brush the egg white on, then inspiration struck: why not put egg whites in the misto? Voila! Fancy sugar sprinkles and some foil to prevent browning, and it came out perfectly, even holding up over night without collapsing, as apple pies are wont to do.”
