If you prefer to make an extra-wide lattice-top crust for this pie, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thick, and cut four 3-inch-wide strips. Chill the strips until firm. Weave the strips over the filling, and seal the lattice to the bottom crust with a mixture of egg and milk.
This simple sugar cookie, decorated with royal icing in red, white, and blue, makes a perfect patriotic treat. To achieve flawless flag stripes, use plastic squeeze bottles to flood the cookies with royal icing.
Corn is in season from May through September but is at its peak in most places in late summer. Of the many varieties of sweet corn, the most commonly found are yellow, white, and bicolor (yellow and white).
When ready to serve, allow cakes to soften in the refrigerator for thirty minutes; run a sharp knife under hot water for a few seconds, dry the knife, and cut the cake. Repeat, rinsing knife between cuts.
