To make a lattice top crust:
Cut dough into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Arrange dough strips across the top of the filling.
Form the lattice by arranging more dough strips at right angle to the first set of dough strips, weaving the strips if you wish.
Trim dough strips even with the overhang on bottom crust. Tuck ends of dough strips and overhangs under; press to seal. Crimp edges.
