Lattice Crust: Cut strips of dough 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide with pastry wheel
or knife. Lay lengthwise strips on top of filled pie at 1-inch intervals.
Fold back alternate strips to help you weave crosswise strips over and
under, placing them on the diagonal. Trim bottom crust and lattice strips
even with outer rim; seal edges. Dampen edge lightly with water and place
extra strip over it, covering ends of lattice. Seal, crimp edge.

1/3 cup sugar.
