I decided to top my latest pie with a lattice. My results in this domain have always been mediocre but this pie is the worst one so far. I started by violating two key rules. First, I started at the edges rather than the middle. Second, I started with strips in both directions; I should have laid down several in one direction, folded up alternate ones, then added the crossing strips.
This is the final result. A little sad, isn't it? Perfectly edible but sad. I am not a role model. Do not follow my example. If I ever manage to put together a presentable lattice top, I will let you know.
