Making a Decorative Pie Crust Edge

By Cook's Illustrated Published September 2010

Decorating the edges of a pie does more than make it look nice.

An attractive border is more than window dressing on a pie—it provides support to the edge to prevent leaking. Here are two styles:

FLUTED EDGE

TINE EDGE

Press tines of fork into dough to flatten against rim of pie plate.
