Braided Pie Crust

 There are many ways to finish a pie crust topping a pie. Recently I saw this photo of Braided pie crusts and thought I should try some of them. 
 This lattice type caught my fancy the most and did not look too fussy to make.
It was fairly easy though I found out it worked best if the strips were narrow rather than wide and you had to be sure they were flat when you were weaving them.

Cut narrow to wide strips of pie crust and
braid together on a floured board before laying on your pie. If you want too you could vary the size of the strips. Lay on your filling and finish with a fluted edge folding the pie crust over the strips. Brush with egg wash or milk and bake as usual.
