This is the perfect recipe if you want to make a good impression. It takes a little time yes I admit but still you can prepare everything in advance. And the lattice work is not as hard as it looks. If you baked a pie with a lattice top then this will be even easier for you. Enjoy .Bon Appetit:) —Gamze Mutfakta (Piper Nigrum)
