How to decorate a pie crust

There are many ways to decorate your pie crust to make it look attractive and appealing when it comes out of the oven. Always roll your pastry to a thickness of about 0.5cm to top your pie. Here we give three examples of decoration but you can use your imagination to create others.

Leaves

Use a leaf shaped cutter to cut pieces out of the pastry

Moisten the rim of the pie dish

Begin arranging the leaves around the edges of the pie dish, overlapping slightly

Make another layer on top leaving the first layer visible

Repeat this until your pie is covered

Push down on the edges to seal

Brush with egg wash and bake in a hot oven

Hearts

After rolling out your pastry cut a hole using a heart shaped cutter before placing over your pie

Trim the edges of the pastry with a small knife

Using the leftover pastry cut out heart shapes and arrange around the edges of the pie, facing inwards

Brush with egg wash and bake in a hot oven

Braid

Cover your pie with pastry and seal the edges

Cut long strips of pastry and fasten 3 together at the top

Braid the strips by folding them over each other

Arrange the braid around the edges of the pastry and push down gently to seal
