How To Make A Lattice Pie Crust, As Explained By Drunk People — VIDEO
If you don't know how to make a lattice pie crust, you're not alone. Getting those delicate strips of dough to fit together in perfect formation, only to be ripped apart later by greedy forks, is a job best suited for either the really patient, or the really drunk. And because we know that most things are made better with wine — especially baking — we decided to go for the latter, and have drunk people explain how to make a lattice pie crust. Of course, they really didn't have any idea either, but they did give it an impressive shot... in between taking shots, that is. Oh, and they danced a lot too, so already drunk pie crust making seems way more fun than sober pie crust making, which, in my own personal experience, almost always leads to tears.
As one ambitious drunk pie maker points out, successfully making a lattice pie crust for your family and friends to admire during the holidays is "kind of the millennial version of saying 'I've got my sh*t together.'" I would argue that going to the grocery store and just buying a pie is another way to show the world just how efficient you are (work smarter, not harder), but I can totally see where she's coming from. Making anything on your own, be it a lattice pie crust or something else, just seems to scream independence. Like, is there anything you can't do? And knowing that you whipped together something that not only resembles a pie, but tastes like one too, can be an amazing confidence boost.
But you know what else is an amazing confidence boost? Wine. So let these drunk bakers show you exactly how easy it is to put together a lattice pie crust when you're sippin' on some vino. No matter what the final product looks like, everyone still comes out a winner.
