  • Next, roll out the top crust so that it will overhang over the pie by about half and inch.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut and slice the top pie crust into 1 inch strips.

  • Seal and crimp the edges.


  • Gently pour the butter and sugar mixture over the crust, being careful to ensure that the mixture covers and seeps into the pie from all angles.
