    Traditional lattice pie crusts are made by weaving strips of pie dough on top of the pie—but there’s an easier way. With this 12-inch lattice cutter, you roll out the pie crust dough, lay the dough on top of the cutter, and use a rolling pin to press the dough onto the cutter to create a perfectly latticed crust that you can simply lay on top of your pie. All that's left is crimping the edges closed, and you've got a beautiful pie that looks professionally done.

    Best for Fall Pies: Williams Sonoma Autumn Leaf Piecrust Cutter

    This autumn leaf pie cutter is an easy way to take your homemade apple pie from a delicious dessert to a work of art. It's simple to use—just place your rolled pie dough on top of the cutter, use your rolling pin to press it into the design, and place the decorative top onto your pie before you bake.

    The two-piece cutter makes it easy to transfer the top crust onto the pie. Once the design has been cut, lift the tab on the flat, inner plate and remove it from the base of the cutter. The flat plate provides enough support to prevent the intricate design from getting stretched or warped when you move it to the pie. Just make sure you've oiled or floured the plastic well enough that the dough won't stick when you try to move it.

One wheel makes straight cuts, while the other cuts a wavy edge for a more decorative finish. When you’re not cutting pie crusts, this can also be used for cutting pasta or even for cutting thin cookie dough. This pasty wheel is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning, but hand washing is recommended.

    Best for Decorating: Fall Pie Crust Cutters, Set of Six

    Fall Pie Punches

    Perfect for all your fall pies, these presses can cut silhouettes or shapes with embossed designs from a sheet of pie dough for a layered top crust. You could also use them to cut a decorative vent in the middle of your top crust or bake them separately as toppers for pumpkin pies, custard pies, or no-bake pies.

    The set includes six different shapes—a pinecone, a pumpkin, a sunflower, and three different leaves. While these presses are meant as fall decorations, the leaves could work for pies any time of the year and can double as cute cookie cutters. The presses are not dishwasher safe, so you'll need to give them a quick hand wash.

    Best Rolling Lattice Cutter: Ateco Lattice Dough Cutter

    There’s no need to weave strips of dough to create a lattice top when you’ve got this handy roller. In order to make a perfectly-spaced lattice design, roll out your pie dough and roll this cutter over in evenly-spaced columns. Then, when you gently pull the sides of the dough, a lattice design will appear, almost by magic. Place the cut lattice on top of the pie, crimp the edges, and bake. Easy!

    Best for Decorative Edges: Palksky Pie Crust Impression Mat

    You don't have to braid delicate ropes or mold intricate details to get an impressive decorative edge to your pie. Instead, these silicone molds let you make even, identical strips that you can place around the edge of your pies before you bake.

    While these molds do make a pretty chain, it's not long enough to loop entirely around most pies. Rather than having messy meeting points, one reviewer suggests placing a decorative flower or leaf over the seams where the strips meet.

    If you’re making pies, you need a good rolling pin. Check out the roundup of our favorites!

    Best for Even Strips: Ateco Six Wheel Stainless Steel Cutter

    If your lattice strips are never even, this tool is exactly what you need. The six wheels are spaced evenly, so you can cut five perfect strips at a time. You can adjust the width of the strips all the way up to 4 inches.

    Not just for pie dough, this tool can also help you make homemade pasta or cookie dough. The wheels on this cutter are 2 1/8 inch in diameter for thin doughs; a version with larger wheels is also available for cutting thicker doughs. This cutter isn't dishwasher safe, so you'll need to handwash it between uses.
