Crisscrossed strips of dough placed on top of a pie or a savory dish, as a decorative covering. It has open sections to display the contents of the baked food. This type of topping is often used instead of a full crust of dough so that the contents will have room to expand when baking, which may be a problem for some dough toppings that fully enclose the contents. When made for a pie, it is referred to as a lattice piecrust.
