7 steps
What you’ll need
Rolled out pie dough
Pizza Cutter
Pie Filling

Roll out your dough long and thin

Cut your dough into long strips, at an equal width (length can vary slightly)

Smush all 3 ends together and lay the middle piece over the top most strand, continue to keep flat
3
To extend braid, smush together the end of one strand with the top of another and hide with weave

Begin curving your dough as you braid to the shape of your design (this will prevent breaking later)

Carefully lift your braid onto the filled pie dish, keeping the braid flat and lifted as you shape
