The double pie crust refers to a crust consisting of both a top and bottom portion. The bottom is placed in a pie pan, and then the pan is filled with pie filling. The top layer is placed on top, and is often crimped around the edges before baking. It is usually best to make slits in the top of the pie crust prior to baking. A common technique also involves brushing the top with egg white or egg wash, which will give it a glossy finish when it is baked.
Top crusts can be made using various designs such as a lattice. This type of crust is often used for apple, cherry, and blueberry pies.
