Crust-o-licious

Making pies for the holidays have become a bit of a monotonous project for me. So when my co-worker asked for me to make a special crust on hers I was actually excited to make something as simple as an apple pie.

The crust was cut with small scalloped cutter and layered starting at the bottom and sticking them together using an egg wash. Its a little extra work but its so beautiful. It made the crust look even more flaky and the inevitable gaps between some of the pieces leave natural steam vents.

I think crust-o-licious should be added to the dictionary - such a creative term for crust! I like it!
