The crust can be on top or on the bottom or both.

I've never made a pie with no bottom crust...
Many pot pies (chicken, beef) don't have a bottom crust. Shepherd's pie and Cottage pie don't have a bottom crust.

You got me thinking Andy. Perhaps, "back in the days of yore", when Shepherds and Cottagers made their pies - they did have crusts? Both top and bottom? To actually be able to hold their "pies" in their hands, as in wrapped in some cloth to take to the fields with them. Very like the Cornish Pasty - (but not for miners of course and not Cornish ).

Yes I call them pies too, but I think of them really as a layered casserole.

There are "hand pies" in many cultures. Whether you call them pasties or empanadas or turnovers or whatever.

I like galettes. I think of it as a pie that was created for those of us who are pie-crimping challenged. With no seam, I can't get a leak.

Besides, what difference does the shape make when they each taste the same and ice cream hides the shape?

Yes, yes, I know that, I meant that the shepherd's pie as we know it could possibly have started out like a pasty.

(btw - you wear pasties but eat a pasty)

Reference AndyM: "...there are 'hand pies' in many cultures.

Reckon street food's been around a long time, longer than we perhaps thought...what do you say?

For some food history on the topic of pie, check out this link:

Dragnlaw, please note the spelling of "pasties" in the second paragraph.

lemon, pie, recipe

Lemon Pie...or Tart??? Hi, kids! All ready for Thanksgiving? :yum: First of all, I am not an experienced baker of desserts. I want to make [B]lemon pie[/B], but then I see that there's also something called[B] "Lemon Tart"[/B], which certainly looks the same to me. You put your home made mixture into a prebaked crust and bake and there you go. So, what is the diff? Also, if I don't have enough lemon juice, would it do to substitute some fresh orange juice? I'm 15 miles from town and can't buy any lemons. Many thanks! :chef: 3 stars 1 reviews
