Recipe Notes

*Note that nutrition facts are only estimates.

Crumb Topping:

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 5 Tbsp butter, slightly softened
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, mix in the butter. Stir in rolled oats and chopped walnuts. Sprinkle topping over pie filling. Bake in a preheated 350℉ oven to bake for 45-50 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and topping is golden.

Tips for making a lattice pie topper

  1. Make enough pie crusts for at least three single-crust pies.
  2. Leaf cutouts are the easiest way to start.  I placed several on top of my Pecan Chocolate Pie before I baked it.  That was easy and looks like I actually fussed.
  3. The pie dough must be COLD at all times.  If the dough starts to warm up, place it back into the refrigerator until it is chilled again.
  4. Check Instagram and Pinterest for design ideas.
  5. If you don't have fall leafcutters, create your own by making a template with cardstock and using that template to cut several leaves or other designs OR come borrow mine.
  6. Don't stress.  Have fun.

Plan Ahead for Pie Success:

  • Make your pie dough in advance.  Refrigerate or freeze round disks of pie dough for ease on pie prep day.  Check out my Pie Crust 101 tutorial.  The holidays are busy enough.  Having a stock of pie dough made and in the freezer will eliminate some of the stress.
  • Pie crusts can be rolled out and pressed into a pie plate or tart shell, covered with plastic wrap, and frozen for ease.
  • Check your pantry and make sure you have all the ingredients on hand before making the pie.
  • The cranberry peach filling can be made a day in advance and refrigerated.  Cool the filling then cover and refrigerate.
