How to make a lattice crust

I am too lazy to type this out right now. Just follow the shitty pictures.

Need a pie crust recipe?

IMPORTANT PRELIMINARY NOTE, THOUGH: When you make a lattice crust, especially for apple pies, you put your fruit at risk of drying out in the oven. It is to your advantage to make the lattice as tightly woven as possible, with little fruit showing. Not like this. I made a second pie after this one with a TIGHT basket-weave and because of that, my apples were the moistest. Yea, I said it. Moistest.
