FOOD FUN: Pie Crust Cutters

Surrounded by luscious spring and summer fruits, it’s hard not to want to bake a pie—or to learn how to bake one, if you’ve never dipped a toe in the oven.

Two pie gadgets from Williams-Sonoma make even a novice seem like a sophisticated pie baker.

LATTICE PIE CRUST CUTTER

Like lattice crusts but lack the time or patience to make them?

Williams-Sonoma offers this solution: a lattice pie crust cutter. It quickly and easily cuts a lattice-like crust from rolled-out dough.

You simply place the lattice insert in the bottom of the gadget’s frame, then lay a sheet of rolled dough on top. To create the pattern, use a rolling pin to press the cutter into the dough. Lift off the insert and invert the latticed dough onto the pie.

It’s not as dramatic as a hand-woven lattice, but it’s certainly more interesting than a solid top crust!

AMERICAN FLAG PIE CRUST CUTTER

What we really love is this American flag pie crust cutter, also from Williams-Sonoma and also $19.95.

While we try to avoid bringing single-use gadgets into our small kitchen, we made an exception for this one. Now, a patriotic pie will be our annual contribution to July 4th festivities.

Get yours at Williams-Sonoma.com.

Both inserts are designed for use with a 12″ diameter pastry crust.
