This month, in homes across the country, rolling pins will be coming out of long-term storage. For some people, this Thanksgiving will mark their first time making a homemade pie.

Sure, you can muddle your way through, but Piper Davis of Grand Central Bakery shows you the quickest way to weave a perfect crust. Even if you're not a baker, it's kind of mesmerizing.
