Originally made and submitted by Lorna back in 2013, these fabulous knitted pies get a ton of love every Thanksgiving so I thought I’d give this post an update this year. Here’s what Lorna submitted with her amazing knitted pie pics, all those years ago:

“This Thanksgiving I decided to top all pies by knitting the lattice crust of my homemade spiced apple pie. It was kind of like being a kid playing with playdo all night in the kitchen… for 3 hours! I used Trader Joe’s Pie Crust, with trips in and out of the freezer when it got too sticky. Chop sticks and straws helped keep my warm hands off and work in the small spaces. I struggled to brush the egg white on, then inspiration struck: why not put egg whites in the misto? Voila! Fancy sugar sprinkles and some foil to prevent browning, and it came out perfectly.”

Looks fabulous – a perfect hack for knitters and foodies alike. Here’s what the process looked like:


Who’s up for the challenge?

Thanks Lorna! Happy Thanksgiving to all! XO
