Tips for Making Pretty Pie Crust Edges

Better Homes and Gardens

I am in awe of people who make consistently beautiful pie crusts. We've offered you some good tips for making reliable crusts and I wanted to show you one more good little resource for making pretty crust edges. (Maybe it will help me perfect my pies by Thanksgiving!)

Better Homes and Gardens has an excellent series of photos and tutorials for making those decorative pie crust edges that add such flair. I especially liked the visual on how to make a scalloped edge — I never quite knew how to do that!
