how do I differentiate a pie from a cornish pastie?
A good question. A pastie passes the encased in pastry test. So is more of a pie than some. I suppose the main difference is that pastie is should be formed from one continous bit of pastry where as pies are normally two.
Handhold-ability? Although then you have confusion between pork pies and pasties...
if i was being really militant i would discount pork pies because they use a hot water crust pastry instead of short crust pastry. which i feel all true pies should really have.
no. it fails the encased in pastry test.
Not to mention Lemon Meringue Pie. Or Homity Pie. Or indeed pumpkin pie.
But I'm with you on stew+pastry pseudopies.
they are also not pie!
They are tarts.
just because people call it pie doesnt it make it one :)
2. Doesn't even exist.
3. So far from a pie it might as well be cottage pie.
Homity pie does exist: http://www.gourmetbritain.com/recipes_entry.php?item=135
Humble pie doesn't....
Lemon meringue pie is yummy and you are all WRONG!
they are indeed yummy they just arnt pie.
It fails the pie test on two counts.
1. Not surrounded by pastry
2. Doesn't contain meat.
I would totally have a shepherds pie pie right now I AM SO HUNGRY.
Is the food in that icon a pie? Note the DOUBLE surrounding of the filling. AND IT IS BEING EATEN BY A HUMAN!
NB this ninja in a cupcake is a pie
